At times the year was very challenging, and seemed to be dragging, and yet here I am a year later and it seems like a distant bad memory. It was tough going through countless tests, 3 surgeries, 8 rounds of chemo and losing my hair. Amid all of the struggle and pain, I found out that I have so many friends and people rooting for me. Friends and even some people I don't know, sent me words of encouragement, flowers, hats, chemo bags, blankets, scarves, and the list goes on and on. I feel blessed to have a great team of doctors, and nurses caring for me, and such a huge support crew. I'd like to thank everyone who encouraged me in some way. You made a difference in my life. Some days were very hard, but I made it through and I can honestly say I appreciate each day more now, than I ever have before.

Luke 12:4 "I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more. But I will show you whom you should fear; Fear him who, after the killing of the body, has power to throw you into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him. Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."
