May 20, 2014

It has been about two months since my last post. It honestly feels like yesterday that I was in the hospital but at the same time, so long ago.  I just recently had my two-month check up and I am proud to say I am still in remission! Though I am in remission and finished with chemotherapy, I […]

“When you’re at the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on”

March 5, 2014

When I first found out about cancer and had the idea to start this website I never expected the amount of support I would receive.  It has been amazing and overwhelming in a good way!  Thousands of people have reached out to me through social media, mailing me cards, support packages, emails, messages and calls.  […]

Picking up where I left off from last week’s treatments – Thursday, January 9th was Day 11 of treatment. I had some more visitors scheduled to come see me.  I had a friend’s mom bring my dad and I lunch and some soccer buddies stopped by.  Both Thursday and Friday (Day 12 of treatment), flew […]

“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

December 19, 2013

I love this quote by Winston Churchill, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” As mentioned in one of my previous posts “You have Cancer,” I’ve only had one breakdown since getting the news of cancer. Since that one breakdown, I decided to focus on the positives out of this situation and […]

“Everything Happens For a Reason.”

December 17, 2013

I am a huge believer in the saying, “Everything Happens for a Reason.” It is something I have lived my life around for quite some time. Now that it was confirmed that the mass on my ball was cancer, it was time to tell my friends and family what was up. Telling people you have […]
