Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Awesome photo

Here she is! My kicking-cancer's-ass cousin at the American Cancer Society Relay for Life near her home in California. I mentioned all that she has been through in a recent post during her two year fight against brain cancer. She had surgery to remove a malignant tumor from her brain on Monday, April 13th . She called me that same evening at midnight to chat (I wasn't surprised), was able to go home two days later and went to the relay on Saturday to walk (mostly ride) the survivor's lap. Our very awesome aunt, who is staying with her for a month, is pushing the wheelchair. She's going to her chemo treatments and her kids' activities every chance she gets. Those both keep her busy and worn out. I just wanted to share a happy photo with all of you who have been so supportive and caring as I've mentioned her in the past. Thank you for your kindness and please keep those prayers coming. We want this to be the treatment that works!


  1. Keep on kicking !! We're keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  2. Wishing your cousin the best! Keep on fightin'!

  3. Your cousin sounds and looks like a fighter!!! tell her that someone in Michigan is thinking of her right now and keeping her in their thoughts!

  4. It's wonderful to see a pic of her smiling. I'm glad she's doing well. I'm still keeping her in my prayers.

  5. That's awesome that after all that, she's not letting her cancer slow her down.
