I have known people who have fought and won the battle against cancer and I have always told them that I am sure their attitude has a lot to do with their healing. Now I have an opportunity to live those words of advice. I am so lucky to have so many caring and loving people around me to help support me on this journey. I have a large cancer growth in my left tonsil and will find out soon what the plan of treatment will be. I have been working with the Cancer Center in Coldwater and will be working with the center in Angola Indiana and the doctors at U of M. My story is like so many others who have been through this and I can only hope that I am as strong as they have been. They are my inspirations as I now better understand the power that hope, love, support, prayers, and faith can have in a persons bridge to recovery. I am fully committed to the belief and faith that all things happen for a reason and at some point in my life, this experience will somehow have a positive reason for happening.
