Its a Wrap

Well It truly was amazing to spend a whole week with 12 young colorectal cancer survivors in one of the most magical places I know of:

A view from the back porch, where lots of morning cups of coffee and talks of colon resections, ostomy reversals, chemotherapy side effects are all discussed, and a place where in the evening slushies are enjoyed as we all reflect on the trials we have been through with the common thread being colorectal cancer. It is hard to believe that all these amazing people:

Have battled cancer.  Such amazing people, each of them have their own story of survival!  You will be able to meet each of them when the 2012 Colondar is released at the beginning of September.  
I am so glad to have added 12 new amazing people to my family.

What next? After diagnosis,surgery,CHEMO?

Tattoo !
 I often talk to families, survivors, etc... about What Next? How do  I live after surgery, chemo, etc.....
There are so many things you can do!  Raise money for your favorite cancer organization so that others may not have to  go through what you have been through, one day hoping that the last penny you earned will be the one that finds the cure.....Surrounding yourself with great people who understand that living life to the fullest each and every day is truly the way to survive......Find others who have been diagnosed with the same cancer as you at the same age as you and fought the same battle as you and find out that you truly are not alone...... 
I am so blessed and happy to say that  I have accomplished all these listed above and I am so proud of the survivors that  continue to be a part of my family and have celebrated life not being inflicted by a terrible disease known as cancer and playing victim but by pulling up our pants and raising awareness of cancer in crazy out of the box ways. 
Check out and apply now to be a 2012 Colondar model.

Life Is Better Than Good!

Well I have been celebrating life so much, I am so thankful for these folks and how they have helped me KICK ASS CANCER to the curb, as a matter of fact this is what we think of colon cancer:

Yep you are definately seeing us wearing our UNDY"S over our clothes as we ran the UNDY 5000 here in Atlanta, a great 5K to raise awareness for colon cancer and the importance of screening and early detection. These rear's are from Virginia, Indiana, Georgia, Florida and ohhh we are missing the cutest fanny of all from California! But no doubt the celebration of a 10 year survivor and  a 5 year survivor has been the best year end gift for me.
And these two ladies?  You have no idea how much they mean to me.  On the left is my virtual Aunt Susan, she is a prayer warrior, let me tell you, supported me daily with her prayers and lifting up my healing to our Savior. And well the one on the right is my Mom, you have no idea how much love, support, etc.... that goes into supporting a family member, going through chemotherapy, multiple surgeries and trying to raise 3 kids and run a household.  And guess what they ran the 5K with all of us and finished!  It was such a relection of time for me, for each 1K that I walked,ran, etc... represented a year of healing and thankfulness.
LOVE TO ALL OF YOU, and Merry Christmas.
