Triumph to Tragedy - from My Life with Ovarian Cancer- Release date July in Paperback and Ebook

I finished chemotherapy one year ago on October 28,2015. I was incredibly happy, that terrible ordeal was over with then all I had to go through and finish was radiation, 28 days and now it’s behind me. I was given a certificate of completion, as if I had graduated from high school. Great idea !

The next day I signed up with a new fitness center along with a personal trainer. I was determined to get back in shape, my goal was a skiing trip, the last thing I wanted to happen was to fall and break something, even worse I didn’t want my friend to think I couldn’t keep up with her. Pride is terrible !

I’m sure she would have understood. Oh well, I did fall once, pretty good considering what I had gone through for most of the year.
Our Christmas was wonderful, my family gets larger each year. Granddaughters seem to continually get pregnant. It causes me to think “ Wow” I’m getting old.


I felt the need to take a trip, just to get out of the house I had been a virtual prisoner in. On our first trip my daughter Sheryll and I visited her dad in Parker Az, a great week of water skiing.

Sheryll and I are very close, she stayed with me during the entire time I was fighting my battles with Cancer. We have a lot of fun together, Sheryll along with my granddaughter and myself went to Cabo San Lucas this year. It was probably the best trip I’ve had there in all of the years I’ve owned my condo. We zip lined I loved it.

Next trip was back to Parker with more relatives and more water skiing, again lots of fun, this time instead of skiing we rode Jet Skis, I think it’s my new passion, with that said I bought one.

I stepped out when the opportunity arose to run for a seat on our City Council, I filed all of the paperwork, built my Facebook page, prepared a website all of the necessary steps I would have to compete for the run.

Then based on my numbers I received on blood tests, I felt the pressure of a lengthy campaign run would not be beneficial to my health, to much stress. I reluctantly backed out of the race, when I sent my notice to all the necessary parties, I was told by the Mayor, I had been in first place to win. Quite the compliment!

Any planning on future events with my foundation were put on hold for awhile, there’s always next year.

We are headed into the end of the year 2016, On October 31st. I received a phone call from Sheryll which I could hardly understand, when I finally did get a grip on what she was trying to tell me the news was devastating, my grandson Dalton, Sheryll’s only son was found dead. She was inconsolable, the details are horrible I won’t go into them.

They live in Hawaii, I’m with her now, we are leaving for California on the 10th of November for another memorial service and some time away from here.
I’ll end with this thought for all of us, Show your children how much you love them always, we have no idea what our future holds. Trust in God, He knows our hearts, the extent of His love we will never understand while we are here on earth, if we have to face what Sheryll has had to go through, remember the pain goes away the memories never leave, the Sun will rise again tomorrow.
In Jesus

Walk or Run with us in Prospect Park 9/12/15 at the 7th Annual ®T.E.A.L. Walk/Run. If you've ever been diagnosed with ovarian cancer we want you to be a part of our survivor ceremony on stage that day. Visit for more details. I'd love to see you there! 

I was initially diagnosed in 2003 with stage 1C ovarian cancer.  After surgery and chemo I was declared cancer free.  Unfortunately, I had a recurrence in 2011 and have been in treatment ever since.  If anyone needs more encouragement or needs to know it is possible to survive.  Let me know if you want to know more.
