Something Funny Happened While I Was Bald

I just felt tonight that I wanted to share something funny that happened to me on my journey, we all know the other side.
While I was going through Chemo, hair already gone, I used to go to Bingo with my mom at the senior center. She sure loved bingo and I love going with her.
The senior center was the first place I decided to remove my hat because it was driving me crazy and I could not take it, not one minute longer. As I took it off and put it on the table my mom looked at me like that's my girl.
I could feel the eyes looking at my shiny bald head but I set there, really wanting to put the hat back on but knowing I had come this far and was not going back.
Later one of my moms friends came up and told her that a friend had ask her " why would such a pretty girl do that to her hair" Now that was funny, I don't care who you are.. More later.
Come on share one of your funnies, we could all use a good laugh... :0)


I learned that cancer does no care if you are a good person or bad.
I learned that under all this hair god had given me a perfect head.
I learned how many people in my life really care about me.
I learned that having a little extra weight on me was a good thing.
I learned that cancer is not predigest, it does not care if you are rich or poor, it does not care if you are black or white, tall or short, pretty or not so pretty, young or old.
I learned that six treatments go faster than you think.
I learned how good it feels to feel good.
I learned how remarkable my body is. Thank you god!
I learned that I am stronger than I would have ever thought.
I learned it is much easier to have cancer, than to watch someone you love have cancer.
I learned that all oncologist should have to have at least one dose of chemo to get there license.
I learned that wearing a wig makes your head itch really badly.
I learned that a bad hair day is better than a no hair day.
And last but not least I learned that I am a survivor and I want every woman that is diagnosed with ovarian cancer to be able to say the same thing.

Im Back! With A Brand New Camera

You thougt I was going to say attitude. Same attitude, new
Hi everyone, I sure have missed all of you, I took a break for a while but now I am back and ready to roll.. Its RELAY TIME!!!!! Relay for life, What is Relay for life? Relay for life is the American Cancer Society's signature activity. It offers everyone in a community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer. Teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking around a track of path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event, Relays are an overnight event.

Teams of people from all walks of life have fun while raising much-needed funds to fight cancer and raise awareness of cancer prevention and treatment.

No matter who you are, there's a place for you at relay. Please think about forming a team in your community.

Relay for Life is a life-changing event that brings together more than 3.5 million people to:

1 . Celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer. The strength of survivors inspires others to continue to fight.
2. Remember loved ones lost to the disease, At Relay, people who have walked alongside people battling cancer can grieve and find healing.
3. Fight Back. We relay because we have been touched by cancer and desperately want to put and end to the disease.

Why Do We Relay???

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated.

Now you say what does pictures of my bird JJ have to do with any thing, absolutely nothing! LOL But I did get a new camera and he is pretty cute...

This is my little love, JJ...

He was sick for a little while, but I loved him better..


THE GARDEN OF HOPE will be our market place here at the cottage to raise money for the cure. We hope that you will love our homegrowns. The garden has just been planted, with lots of love and nurturing we hope to be able to harvest in beginning to mid October. Please check back, we will be looking for you.
