Is your world as small as mine?


Is your world as small as mine? Maybe it is because the older I become the smaller my world gets or perhaps it is because I have survived cancer that I become more aware of the dautzenleins {pronounced   “dots -‘n- lines” ) are the connections of people, places, dates, and events.

My father passed in 1990 from mesothelioma, a deadly and rare cancer of the protective lining of the lung. The prognosis of this form of cancer is bleak…very bleak. My father lived for 18 months. He passed as I, with my mother, tried to lift him back into bed. His hand waved a goodbye as he collapsed in my arms. It is a memory that still feels as if it happened yesterday. I will by no means ever forget that precious moment, not for one instant.

Spotmany, yes you can!

Yesterday I received an email from the husband of Heather Von St. James. Cameron asked that I post this video of his wife, a long-term cancer survivor of…you guessed it! MESOTHELIOMA!. Given that statistics show the life span of someone with this diagnosis is 15-18 months, Heather is proving that statistics do not matter!

Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance states “While there is currently no cure for mesothelioma, many patients have had success in managing their cancer with not only traditional treatments like chemotherapy and surgical methods, but also through the use of nutritional supplements, palliative therapies, and body-stress reduction techniques. Some patients diagnosed with mesothelioma have survived many years after what was an initially unfavorable prognosis.”

I must repeat these lines from mesothelioma.com “managing their cancer with not only traditional treatments like chemotherapy and surgical methods, but also through the use of nutritional supplements, palliative therapies, and body-stress reduction techniques.”

Heather is alive. She is alive…period! Look beyond what medicine can do and live! What are you willing to do to survive?
