The first GoFundMe campaign and the bracelets were the brainchild and work of the greatest nieces and nephews any woman could ask for. That goal was met with mind bending speed. Thanks to your generosity I will be going home to spend time with my family and attending an amazing women-only writing retreat in Rochester, NY in July along with many of the most amazing poets in the country.
My doctor continues to be amazed not only by my body's fantastic response to treatment, but also by my positive attitude and can do spirit in the face of what she initially felt was an unwinnable fight. I just laugh and tell her 'That's what happens when the whole world is praying for you!' LOL
Next week I will begin my 4th round of chemo. I was blissfully unaware when this began that the chemo side effects would get progressively worse. Round 3 was by far the toughest to date, but your continuous love and support along with the tremendous success of my treatment makes all of it bearable.
The medical bills have only just begun to roll in and there are still many dreams/plans on my wish list. I refuse to call it a Bucket list because I'm not planning to kick any buckets any time soon.
I've never been very good at promoting my own work or God forbid, asking for donations. I prefer to share my poems and let you decide if they move you enough to buy my books; to keep you posted on my journey, my fight, and give you this space to lend any financial support you are able and willing to provide.
Your love and prayers are the most priceless gifts I have ever received. Cancer treatment and wish fulfillment are both costly and I thank you in advance for your continued generosity.
Love you back!
