Thank you for migrating here with me to my new blog. My cancer journey continues to grow and develop and each phase brings me new inspiration, hope, and purpose.

Crossing the Finish Line
Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. Psalm 30:2 In 1999, shortly after I moved to the west coast, I signed up for a 10K run with my friend Deb.
