On September 15, 2012 I under went colon rectal stage 3 surgery. That for me was a journey that started me down a road of understanding how many are affected by this disease of all ages. Cancer is not a death sentence and for me it opened up a way to help others in life. I crochet or knit breast prosthesis for cancer survivors and help others in any way I can. It has been 5 years cancer free now for me and I stay positive that there is do much to do yet in my life.
