Cancer, life, and me...

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

I am an extremely proud, yet incredibly angry, 28-year-old cancer survivor. I think it's important to write about the dark side of illness. Not ALL survivors are happy and determined and full of smiles. Sometimes, it's okay to say "FU@K YOU" to cancer, life, and even God.

I'm not enlightened and don't know the answer to happiness. Right now I only know rawness, anger, and my honest, gut reactions to events beyond my control.

If you feel lost, angry, scared, or just plain want to say, "FU@K cancer," please read my online journal:

At the very least, you may end up feeling not so alone.

I relate how I was able to juggle a full-time professional job with treatments and parenting.
