When I was waiting for the results of my biopsy in 2001, I told my 3 daughters there could be no bad news; whatever happened, it would strengthen me, my family and my ties to the universe. After my mastectomies, I said the only sadness I felt was that I couldn't give blood. My daughters all went out and gave blood for me! How blessed am I?!

Since then, I studied art and have had showings, I continue playing piano and have started learning ukulele. Life starts again every day!
