Biggest take-away(s) from your cancer experience
While I was in treatment, I was not very grateful for the doctors and medical professionals that worked with me because I was always in pain and felt sick. I know now that they were instrumental in helping to make me well, and I am very appreciative. This time also grew my compassion for others.
Words to live by

Wisdom is wondering if that makes ketchup a smoothie.
Common sense says, “No it obviously isn’t.”
