Outshine ovarian cancer
Since diagnosed with Stage IIC ovarian cancer in 2008, I educated myself about this deadly disease's symptoms, statistics, drugs, and tests. Just as I always have done when faced with a life changing event, I turned to my faith the blessings of family and friends, complementary and traditional therapies, humor, and role models such as Norman Vincent Peale, Albert Schweitzer, Wayne Dyer, and others.
This is a book of information and inspiration as I attempt to provide hope with the knowledge that "the beauty of the soul, the real me and the real you, outshines the effects of cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation."
I believe that people come into our lives for a definite purpose, and that is to learn and grow. Sometimes they are negative, evil, or bad people, but we are still to learn from them. I can use my stepfather as an example. I learned why abuse occurs and that it was not my fault. Once I forgave him, I was able to help other people who suffered from abuse. Fortunately I have been blessed with many kind and beautiful souls, who have taught me so much about me and my life.
