• The boys and I

  • A Little ‘Bout Me

    I’m 44, married and live in a sewerless small town on the central coast of California. I am an Inflammatory Breast Cancer survivor. My passions are reading, knowledge, shopping and photography – in varying order depending upon my mood. Though I’ve always wanted to be really good at something, I find that I’m just pretty good at most things. I live with my husband, Daddy-O, and our sons, Ben and Danny who are 10 and 5. Ben has ADHD and enough natural energy to power the Pacific Time Zone… and he’s not afraid to use it. Danny has Norries – a rare genetic disease causing him to be born blind. It’s a crazy, hectic life but I can’t complain any more than usual.

Educate to Eradicate


Dear Breast Cancer,

I always knew you were out there.  Lurking.  Wreaking havoc in people’s lives.  But we didn’t travel in the same circles and I thought my family was safe from your poison.  How naive I was!

A typical bully, you came into my life at my weakest point.  You thought I’d be an easy mark!  Well, the joke was on you!  I fought you!  I beat you!   You’ve been out of my life for four glorious years now.  Here’s a news flash for you:  I don’t miss you one bit!

You caught me off guard in 2005.  It won’t happen again.  My new life’s mission is to ensure you can’t do the same to other women.  I will educate as many women as I can to eradicate you!

Watch your back, cancer!  I’m coming for you!
