Hello Everyone,

Carol made a new video called, "Unbidden Perimeters." She speaks eloquently about living within the perimeters of metastatic cancer. As always, she inspires us with her depth of expression and open heart.

Thank you for continuing to support Carol through this process.

May your spring be filled with new growth, love and joy.

Blessings,

Rev. Diane

Well it's been a long time since I've posted anything...I've been hibernating while waiting for results. I have an infected jaw and I've been on IV antibiotics for four weeks, 7 days a week and more to come.

I had a bone biopsy in NYC last week and found out yesterday that it is the SAME cancer in my bones as the rest of my cancer... So the doctor's recommend I go back on Xeloda, stay on Tykerb and add Herceptin back into the mix. I don't expect you to know all these drugs, but they are forms of chemotherapy. It is tiring, but I'm not in pain, I still have my hair, wits, and am napping frequently. Love to all, Carolxxoo

Carol continues to write to cope with having stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Her writing has led her to become part of a memoir group—which together has written a book called "Holding On, Letting Go." Carol also now runs another memoir group in our community. Writing has become an essential part of her life.

In this new piece Carol talks about the portal that awaits us all.

All contributions are still very much welcomed and appreciated.

My wish is that you find peace, fun, ease, and tremendous amounts of love in 2014.

Blessings,

Rev. Diane

Carol, I just LOVE reading everything you write, especially hearing it in your own voice. I think this is definitely the baby of your dream, perhaps among many other gifts of yours. May you continue writing and enjoying life, and sharing your gifts, for a very long time.
