    We've all heard about people making a "bucket list", maybe after a life threatening illness or event.

      When I was diagnosed, I wanted to continue doing agility with my dogs. It was touch and go for awhile, but we have been able to play together for the entire time since diagnosis. Nowadays, I can keep up with my non-cancer friends. I am proud of that fact!

      We had purchased a nice digital camera prior to my getting sick. I spent a lot of time taking pictures of birds and things I could find from my chair in the backyard. I don't take many pictures now, but my camera and I were best buddies for the first couple of years! I, too, took a couple of photography classes after I was diagnosed. Would love to take a Photoshop class sometime.

      Will you post some of your pictures to the Pinboard for us?

      camping. My husband does the work, I do as much as I can. I love sitting in a park somewhere in nature. Very healing.

      When I was handed the first "death sentence" I knew there was one and only one thing I needed to do. That was to "get right with the Lord" So I began devoted much of my time to prayer. Then the a little more than a year after the first diagnosis my daughter arrived a carload of plants and fancy bricks to make flowerbeds and announced that we were making a victory garden to celebrate my victory over cancer this would be a way to praise the Lord. I also found interest in Bible Study. When I got the next "death sentence" I vowed I would read the entire Bible, still working on that one. Today I bought some plants to finish off Victory Garden VII
      I now refer to my life as the 11th inning.

    Do you offer your support and share your experiences with cancer when you hear of someone having cancer, and they don't know that you do?

      I've had 2 coworkers diagnosed with breast cancer since I was diagnosed w/endometrial cancer. One already knew my story -- the other hadn't started before I was through w/treatment. I let both of them know that I would help any way I could. One received some of my scarves. The other borrowed a cane from me.

      I feel that God's plan for me is to share my knowledge with others.
