On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know… .…that betrayal of yourself in order not to betray another is betrayal nonetheless. It is the Highest Betrayal. You are not avoiding betrayal by betraying yourself, you are merely choosing whom to betray. In fact, there is no such thing as “betrayal.” There is [...]

We own the road

My mother and I are headed home from treatment #4. Mom is driving like we are in New York. I want to cover the license plate. She is more controversial than chemo! I told her I did not come this far to be taken out by my mother with too much zip on a meandering [...]

Hi Sunshine, Just got on your website and saw that you are losing your hair again. I don’t know who said it but I agree and have always said even the first time you went through this that you look beautiful inside and outside no matter what. Even when I had the honor of giving [...]

A Mother’s Love

My mother laid aside her terrifying fear of water to cross the ocean to be with me. That means we are not participating in water sports or taking the submarine ride during her visit!

My life is blessed with some phenomenal male friends. One in particular was the first person that soothed my insecurities early on during my first experience with cancer and chemotherapy.  The insecurity was “who would want a woman with a history of cancer?” It seems ludicrous now, however, at the time it was very real.
