    Birthday

    Celebration

    Many many many birthdays and many kids of my own later... almost 40 years of being cancer free. I never appreciated what that meant until my mom was diagnosed with cancer. I was blessed by God to have the right people in the right place at the right time to diagnose and treat my small body. I praise God everyday for the gifts he gave those in my life.
