Cancer has taught me that I am brave, strong, courageous, determined, a fighter, a survivor and an overcomer. It has helped me to be more compassionate, loving, faithful, a dreamer of better things to comeand to have hope. It has made me emotional, sensitive, reliant on others and wanting more than ever to be a better person. Cancer has taken the woman that I was, made me the woman that I am and will make me become the woman that the Lord has meant for me to be. Sometimes I curse this cancer for changing me, for taking my hair, my eyelashes, my eyebrows, my workout routine, my figure, my normal life, my independence, my physical strength and my money (I know it's just money but still...). But it can't takemy family, my friends, my amazing army, my faith, my courage, my testimony, my relationship with my Savior, or my will to press onward and upward!
I'm a daughter, sister, favorite auntie, friend, physician assistant, lover of candy, tulips, fruit, a good salad, traveling adventures, a good book, style, flip flops, spinach shakes, Boise State Football and cooking, who happened to be diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in June 2013 and will fight like no other to live a positive, happy, vibracious, exciting life as a survivor and overcomer!
