Me and my Jason

This is my husband Jason. He was so kind, patient and supportive through my whole cancer diagnosis, treatment and the long road of recovery. I am so lucky to have such a good and loving guy. God is good and has blessed me with an angel to spend my life with. Eileen

A lotus flower tattoo to symbolize making it through my cancer journey.

I got this tattoo last summer(August 2008)and I really love it. Every time I look at it I am reminded that I made it through the nightmare of breast cancer treatment and I conquered my fear of the tattoo gun! I can't wait to get another.....Eileen

This picture was taken last summer(2008) and it had been a really nice day spent with family and friends. My little Dewey was being really cute and I scooped him up and asked my husband to snap a picture of us:0)

Surviving Mom's Cancer

The Orange County Register

I was pacing back and forth on the same five-foot length of sidewalk. My friend was waiting for me inside a Mexican restaurant. My enchiladas were getting cold.

"They can't do anything?" I frantically asked.

"Nope," she said. The voice coming through the line was a mix of resignation, frustration, anger and sadness. "They're not giving me the transplant. They've taken me off the list."

She was crying. I never cry. But it didn't mean the truth hadn't hit me just as hard.

She had cancer. And it was going to kill us.

When you're little, you think your parents are invincible. For as long as I can remember my mom, Sharon Louise Rubio, was sick somehow. But she always beat it, and in my mind that equated to her having a big Superman "S" on her chest.
