Twist on Cancer: My breast cancer experience began on Valentines Day 2011. I had two small boys, ages 4 and 9, and a loving husband. Thankfully, my support system gave me the feeling of being surrounded by pillows. I relied not only on my people, but on women who had already traveled down this road. For me, connection was key. I felt I could breathe, even beat it, with my people.
On the other side of treatment, I have healed myself even more, by supporting women faced with the road I have traveled. There is great strength and inspiration to be found when we band together.
Somehow, I was paired with Sharon, my artist, and (I hope) lifelong friend. Her generosity of spirit, both in her art as well as her gift of connection, have been a gift to me. xo
For me, cancer will be a lifelong theme. And I will fight it fiercely and passionately, with my people beside me.
