On 16May of this year i was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and started going through radiation this past week. it has reallt gotten me thinking that in my life i haven't reallt lived the way i wanted. don't get me wrong i've always tried to be kind and compassionate and live in a responsible way but now i'm really trying to think of the things i want to do with the rest of my life. the doctors won't tell me what stage the cancer is just that radiaition is my best shot. i'm NOT giving up & and i'm not going to die if i have any say so. i know i want to go back to school and finish my degree in biology. i know i want to work in a field where i can make a difference. beyond that i'm pretty lost. i'm also raising a really cool 10 year old son. has anyone else had an ah-ha moment that made them shake their head and say damn i really need to do something? peace.
