My story

Posted on February 23 2015

I have a bit of a unique perspective to offer. Cancer has been dancing beside me for a very long time. My paternal grandmother fought it for a very long time, having been diagnosed shortly after my father was born and then dying of it when I was 9. My paternal grandfather passed away from prostate cancer when I was around 27. My best friend in nursing school died of breast cancer when she was 40 and I was 36. My first husband died of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia when he was 44. And my father died of adenocarcinoma almost 7 years ago. I have now worked in Pediatric Oncology for almost 8 years (having been a nurse since 1976). We dance a strange dance, cancer and I. I do not know what the future holds for me as cancer seems to have played a major role in my life. What I do know is that life is precious and special. To all who dance with cancer in their lives... you dance a very special dance. Many blessings to you...........
