AKA just MaryO. I'm a Cushing's and kidney cancer survivor
Introduction
I've dealt with Cushing's and it's aftereffects since the early 1980's and with renal cell carcinoma (kidney cancer) but I have now passed the golden 5-year mark.

I like playing piano, piano duets, handbells, singing.  Pretty much anything musical.
