I shared my personal battle with cancer in a very public way......the World Wide Web in hopes that by me sharing my story I could help someone else. I never dreamed how much love and support would be returned to me. Cancer stopped being so scary after many of you shared your own battles with this disease or that of a loved one with me. I also found a sisterhood with Trish over at My Breast Cancer Story and Stephanie over at in perpetual motion... We were all diagnosed pretty much around the same time with different types of Breast Cancer and treatments and I know for me personally, I never felt alone......I knew their hopes, their dreams and their fears....we are walking this path together even though we are miles apart.
I recently met a woman named Gina (she found me through my blog) who is losing her Brother Joseph to Cancer.........his started out as a mole on his butt cheek that he could have never found on his own and has spread through out his body. Gina recently started a blog to help herself through this...we all know journaling is good for the soul and I hope J-Land can show her the same love and support you have all given to me...so if you get a chance please stop by and say hello to her, telling her Brother's story will help so many, get to know your body, listen to your body and your intuition....I didn't because as Mom's we tend to put ourselves on the back burner while we go about taking care of everyone and everything else first but by the GRACE OF GOD my cancer was caught in time....I am one of the lucky ones....and I will never take myself for grant it again...I will make and keep all Doctor appointments, I will finish all my medicine even if I am feeling better and I will rest when I am tired and I will learn to say "no" a lil more often....I am in charge of my health....and I was saved for a reason...perhaps it's because I am an open book for all to read and I want to pass along everything I have learned through this journey.
Here is Gina's blog ~~~~> i love you joseph vincent..today.tomorrow.eternity
