Comedy Night

I am super excited about my upcoming Comedy Night introducing my new book The Crusaders of which I am a super hero along with six other amazing authors. I love life and I love to laugh. I wake up in the morning smiling and go to bed at night doing the same. I never really thought about it before but …

My Son

Today, 24 years ago at 8 AM, my labor was induced since I was past my original due date. After having been through all I had been through in my life, why would my pregnancy be any less difficult. At 4 1/2 months, I had surgery and now, over 9 months, they fire up the medicine to make my baby …

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

As September comes close to an end, I ponder about the this past month, and I think of all the posts about Childhood Cancer Awareness. Everyone jumped on the band wagon and shared, posted, liked, commented, etc., and to say the least, it was quite touching to read all that I could read. We banned together, like each month of …

Feeling Really Good

As some of you know, I personally have suffered from so many setbacks in my life that it is difficult to overcome the fear at times of another one. Over the past two years, I have been hospitalized for bowel obstructions, and although I did not need surgery like in the past, it still leaves a fearful questioning of when …

Celebrating A Birthday

September is the month of my birthday, so it’s very interesting that it is the same month we try to bring awareness to childhood cancer, a cause dear to my heart. It must be fate—something I believe very strongly about, and here I am, on my birthday, sharing my day with all of you. When I was an ill as …

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

We are often drawn to celebrate monthly things like Breast Cancer Awareness in October. There are thousands of illnesses we try to bring awareness to so we can bring to attention to help fight them. September has been labeled Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and, being a big advocate of any kind of cancers, September hits home for me personally. I …

Our Granddaughters

Today our granddaughters are over for the day and are staying overnight.  Nothing makes me happier than spending time with them. They look at life in a different way, with open eyes and no worries. I wish we could all face life that way, but unfortunately we all grow up and become responsible adults. For now, I will look through …

A New Volunteer

Just received a call from a parent of a young boy I recently helped. I was able to get him an appointment at CHOP quickly since he was suffering with something and his parents were frantic. Of course, anything that happens with our children and their health makes us frantic, so when I can help, I do. As a result, …

Life is Too Short

Nobody likes to think about the end! Life cannot just end and then there is nothing. Or can it? For me, going through all that I endured (and still endure at times) is enough for me to believe that life is too short, and I cannot sweat the small stuff. I believe that we need to treat ourselves as precious …
