Celebrating a life…

I just found out that a young woman who was diagnosed with the same rare type of cancer I had—Large Cell Cervical Neuroendocrine Cancer—died today…one day before her 34th birthday. Her’s was caught much earlier than mine yet her doctors didn’t know about the cutting-edge treatment I had and by the time I found her, it was too late. I’m working on changing that for others by working with my doctors to write up my case for the medical literature, but am saddened that her bight light has gone out so early as a wife & young mother of two. Yet I have to trust in the Divine plan of our lives that I’ve come to know so intimately along my journey and that she’s just beyond the thin veil that separates this life in the next. Praying for her family. Please use her passing as a reminder to live and to truly come alive in your life.
