I wanted to let everyone know that while I've shared a lot of resources in the past, one of my go-to resources now is Jane McLelland's How… Continue reading My FAVORITE Cancer Resource!
Hey all! I have a lot of people ask me what I eat so I wanted to share some snippets of my diet with you. Before I post any of those, I wanted to address nutrition in general.

Oh goodness friends, I've gone another long stretch between posts. I assure you that for me, no news is good news. I have been busy homeschooling my three children and enjoying life. I don't take lightly the fact that by all expert accounts, I should be long dead. Thank goodness God blessed me with a… Continue reading BIG Changes!

Living with cancer is a funny thing. In the throes of proverbial battle, I felt on edge and every day seemed uncertain.
