I am pure spirit soul inhabiting a magnificent body composed of stardust, sunshine and trillions of living breathing cells. I have bright blue eyes and soft tan skin. I describe myself as a Yogi, a Farmer, an Aunt, a Best Friend, A Daughter, a Lover, an Artist, a Homemaker, an Event Designer, a Traveler, a Seeker and a Cancer Survivor. My cancer journey has proven to be an incredibly transformative experience. Perhaps the greatest teacher I’ve encountered thus far. In an effort to make sense of this most recent and unexpected aspect of myself, I am moved to extract and share some lessons I have endured in an effort to educate and inspire others.
