It’s been awhile since I gave this website any love. I’ve been going through quite a change, with going through the healing journey of Stage 2 breast cancer this past 9 months!
That timing pf 9 months from the first mammogram to the completion of treatment is very interesting to me, ’cause I feel as though a ‘new ME’ has been birthed. I’m sure people can come to a reinvention of themselves in different ways; for me, in came in the form of hormone positive, HER-2 negative, ductal cancer (which is the most common, which is a good thing). I had a lumpectomy, chemo, and then a month of radiation. In theory, the ‘bad stuff’ has been zapped, and now it’s a matter of building my immune system up again, staying on my hormone-blocking medication, and hoping that I maintain a healthy balance of health and life!
In this new 2.0 re-boot, I’m wanting to do things differently. Challenge myself more in different ways when it comes to getting my writings and creativity out into the world. Right now is a pretty intense time, with a lot of old fears and things popping up as my husband and I attempt to settle (at least part-time) in the artistic and creative town of Bisbee, AZ, but I am excited and grateful about this new chapter in life!
