Hi All
Thought it was time to tell you a bit about myself. I was on this site less than a year some years ago. Time, health and care of my mother took me away.
My goal is to live. I live through taking photos. It makes me feel alive and good inside.
In 2013 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and beat it for 5 years. This was not to last. I was once again diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. It was found in my spine and breast. This all started at the end of 2019. With the diagnosis... I was not sure I would make it 6 months. The recent PET CT showed no cancer. I take a shot once a month (kind of like chemo) it is supposed to protect me from the cancer. So far so good. I now feel I have a purpose in my walks and taking pictures. I used to wake up waiting to die. I now wake up with excitement and enjoy every minute of every day. My sisters and I also run a small dog rescue which will keep you hoping to help the next animal that needs us. We save one tail at a time. We vet and give love and work with them to make sure they have the right home.
