The number of times I’ve talked a blue streak around this

“project that I’ve been working on”... I can’t even begin to
count them all.... and then I thought to myself: “This is BS-you wanna call yourself a writer? Act like it!”

So... that’s what I did... sort of... Most of this crazy book
that I’ve been creating is built from pictures and sketches
and stuff I thought up when I was trying not to think about
death or pain or sadness or any of those other unsightly
things we think about when Cancer rears its ugly head.
If something didn’t make sense to me... I’ve learned to
use my imagination to create a world where I can deal with
not knowing and plod my way through each and every day of
treatment or feel my body ‘do it’s thing.’ Noticing the
simpler things that were all around me helped me feel
a whole lot better.

Anything etched in my memory? You betcha!!
>> A sun shower and a rainbow came out
to play on the day that I first swallowed
radioactive iodine. I was waiting for my
my daddy to come and take me home
me home for my period of isolation-I had to stay from everybody because
I was radioactive for five-ish whole
days!

You know that thing that you thought of
doing a while back and you’ve been meaning to get to but never quite got around to
doing what you said you were going to do? Meet my life... sort of... I am one of those crrrazy creative
loons who has all these fantastic ideas about stuff I can make or build and then I get distracted with life
and I move on to something more important? Sound familliar?

Nothing special... just part of what
we everyday superheroes have to do
to kick Cancer out of our body for
good.

Rainbows always make a bad day melt away.
+ All the love and positive vibes that this world
has to give are what truly saved me: like super
powerful sidekicks reminding me how very import
ant I am even when I don’t feel all that good.
I am NEVER going to STOP
IMAGINING a world where
SUPERHEROES fight for
TOMORROW TOGETHER!!
