I am delighted you dropped in for a visit. Get comfortable, settle in, grab a cup of tea. I hope that you will step through this Internet portal and find encouragement, support and helpful tips as you navigate the currents of cancer and chemotherapy.

Whether you are already engaged in a battle against cancer or struggling with a new diagnosis, maybe you will identify with my story and those of other women who have traveled along this path.

Perhaps you have stopped by in search of encouragement for a loved one. I welcome you as well.

May God bless and strengthen each one of you as you learn to dance in the shadow of cancer.

I’d love to hear from you. After browsing my site, visit my contact page and leave me a note.
