Light the Night 2005 Waterfront Park

As many of you know this year I fought a battle. A battle I never knew I would have to fight. Through prayers, treatments, nurses, doctors, and wonderful friends like you I won the battle. Unfortunately not everyone wins the battle. We must find a cure for this disease. That is why I am asking for your help!

I am raising money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as a participant in their Light The Night Walk and I'm asking you to help by making a contribution. Each donation helps accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma and brings hope to the patients and families who are on the front lines of the battle against these diseases.

Please use the link to donate online quickly and securely. You will receive a confirmation by email of your donation and I will be notified as soon as you make your donation.

On behalf of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, thank you very much for your support. I really appreciate your generosity!

You can learn more about my efforts and make a donation by visiting the following Web sites:

Please, continue to pray for the many families who are affected by this disease.

So now what ...

I have had a busy, yet wonderful summer. It felt like Phil and I traveled all summer.

I visited the oncologist once this summer with a clean report. I will have my next PET/CT scan September 22nd with a report from the doctor on September 27th. I will be repeating scans every 6 months.

I have begun doing aerobics about 3-4 times a week, which has tremendously, boosted my energy level. I feel like I am almost back to normal in the energy department.

I will be going back to work this week. I have been working in my classroom the last few days. Our school has been under construction and I have just now been able to get into my classroom. The students start this week.

I am not sure how regularly I will update but I will update after my PET/CT.

What Cancer Cannot Do

The young girl Chris, whom I have been following passed away. I never met Chris I just came across her website. By reading her journal entries I felt like I knew her. Her courage and strength inspired me.

What Cancer Cannot Do
Cancer is so limited . . .
It cannot cripple love,
It cannot shatter hope,
It cannot corrode faith,
It cannot destroy peace,
It cannot kill friendship,
It cannot suppress memories,
It cannot silence courage,
It cannot invade the soul,
It cannot steal eternal life,
It cannot conquer the spirit.

Prayer Needed

As a fellow cancer survivor I follow several cancer survivor journals. I have been following Chris for quite sometime. She is in need of your prayers. She has truly been an inspiration to me as I have been following her. Please, pray for her healing and comfort.
