What I hope to accomplish…

When I was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer in 2015, I thought my life was over…literally…over.  My Dads girlfriend was diagnosed with the same cancer and in a matter of weeks…she was gone.  I thought for sure the same thing would happen to me and I blamed myself for having smoked for so long.  Well, Ive been through 10 rounds of chemo, 45 radiation treatments and a year of infusions in a clinical trial.  Not only am I still alive…but Im finally starting to LIVE again.  Its taking a lot of hard work…mostly psychological…and this blog is my next course of treatment…but I think I may have just found a way to live with terminal cancer.  Life is terminal…I learned that this week while attending a cancer retreat.  We are all going to die.  When and how is not up to us…its up to God, and I believe He has bigger and better things in store for me than dying at 47….I guess we’ll see wont we?  xoxo D
