I have spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out why this happened to me and what the purpose might be.  I have still had no great epiphany except that maybe I was meant to share what I have experienced and learned so that it might help somebody else.  Who knows?

I have been able to participate in various cancer-related initiatives over these past few years and I am always willing to lend a patient perspective whenever it might be needed.  Just ask!

Here are some of the cancer-related things that I have participated in over the past few years:
