My name is Mary, and I have lung and spine cancer. I am lucky, the type of cancer I have is treatable with a special Chemotherapy drug called, Tarceva.  So, after months of pain, my body has been given a reprieve.

I did not come back to life unscathed, the doctors waited to long to diagnose my condition.  They did not expect me to make it out of the hospital.  I lived, but was left  with permanent nerve damage to my right hand, and nerve pain radiating down both my arms and my legs.    I am truly thankful to be alive, and know it could have been a lot worse.

Now what?  This blog is my person journey “life with Cancer?”  What next?

I have always lived life to the fullest. I have felt great joy and excruciating pain. I have succeeded and failed many times. Some people called me reckless others courageous. None of the views of others mattered until two years ago when I faced death like a Tuesday evening date. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. My life changed the moment the words "You have cancer" was spoken. Now everything I do I am conscious of. Please join me on my blog Stage 4 Living Life to the fullest with Cancer. Or my blog Ruby Moonbean Fantacy and Science Fiction. PEACE


Cancer, Finding Peace, Life goes on
