Oh No!

ohno

I knew it was going to happen. This is how you learn. That heart racing moment when you realize you pushed the wrong button and you can’t take it back. No, No , No, STOP…….. I work on my drafts during  the week and post on Sunday nights. While saving my post this morning, I pushed the wrong button and published by mistake. If you received my newest post please know it was my draft and my official edited and complete post will be tomorrow night! Never a dull moment.

About Shari

I am a two-time cancer survivor and patient advocate. Diagnosed as a young adult, at age 25 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, I had to quickly face the reality of life’s curveballs. My treatment offered a potential cure while at the same time, underestimated the long term side effects including a secondary cancer (breast cancer) nine years later. Shortly after my breast cancer treatment ended, my youthful, seemingly healthy mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer and passed a year later. I have lived the cancer experience as a patient and a family member/ caregiver and understand both sides. Life after treatment is often challenging emotionally and physically and there is a gap in providing needed support. I don’t consider cancer a gift as it is not something I would ever want to give to someone. Rather, I view cancer as an opportunity; one I received at an early point in my life to live intentionally, understanding how things can change at any moment. I live without regrets, fully understanding the gift and fragility of life.
