My last Day of High School is Here..
Its so hard for me to grasp that i made it . Honestly was not sure that i would just 21 months ago.
It was really important for me to do my all to get the best grades that i could.
A big part of that reason was to prove to myself and others on this journey that Cancer treatment does not have to beat you down. Yes i had and have my struggles post treatment.
But i am ending ap with all A's including AP courses after the final semester of a highly competitive high school. It has been worth all of the hard work that i have put into it these past months.I can honestly say now that cancer does not...

Thoughts about the journey of writing "Surviv
Its Monday..creating a plan for the week to fit in daily writing for our book. This really does seem like a pregnancy in that we envision what our book will look like when it is finally delivered and do participate in the daily "exercise and nutrition consumption" that will aid in developing this baby into a healthy and happy book...:)

Sometimes when i recall the earlier parts of our journey through the nightmare that cancer brought to our lives, i just cry and cry. Tears of joy, relief, sorrow, pain a lot of emotions buried for way too long. Writing and hoping that this book will become a...

My "Make a Wish Trip" to Oaho, Hawaii
My mom and i just got back late last nite from a week in Oahu. It was a week filled with moments i will treasure forever. The best part for me was that cancer felt like a distant nightmare. I felt normal and happy for the very first time in over 2 years. Mom and i had alot fo fun on the beach. I went surfing for the first time on my life and really enjoyed it a ton, We talked alot about ourselves and our hopes for the future. It was easy to do that in Hawaii. We also made good progress on our upcoming book "Shattered Lives" I enjoyed painting on teh beach and eating fresh fruits and local...
