Not a day goes by that I can’t believe how incredibly fortunate I am! And I thank God (and my dad) every time I think to. Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer I kept asking myself “why me?” Even now I still ask the question,”why me?”, but it’s for an entirely different reason. Why did God save me of all people? There had to be a reason. What purpose am I to fulfil? That’s when it came to me, I had to get the word out. And with my background as a nurse and currently working in computer software I had the perfect foundation, analytical skills and tools. I feel like my whole life has led me to this point. My purpose is to help as many people as I can! Everything I went through from the time of diagnosis, to the surgery, to the chemotherapy, then finding that spot in my liver was absolutely necessary. As the nurse I knew I needed to take the standard of care route first, so there are no regrets if I had chosen not to do traditional medicine and my disease progressed. And I never thought I’d say this, but at this point I’m actually grateful for the cancer experience. I now realize I needed every piece of it to be where I am now… helping you!
So, this is why I decided to start and continue to maintain this blog. What else is in it for me? Absolutely nothing other than the satisfaction that I know I’m doing everything I can to get the word out and to help everyone I possibly can! The links I’ve added under ‘Research Springboard’ are a couple of sites I had bookmarked because I thought they were interesting in my own quest for information. Hopefully they will serve as starting points for those seeking answers. They don’t even scratch the surface of what’s out there. If you are wondering how I’m doing, keep checking back to the ‘Health Status Updates’ page. I will update it for each doctor appointment or milestone. As time goes on these are less and less frequent, but that is good news in itself.
Lately I see that ‘Ads by Google’ have attached multiple links that, so far at least, appear to be related to peroxide therapy. I want you to know that these links were not solicited by me and I have nothing to gain for them being there except that it must help keep the lights on at wordpress.com. I have no problem with that as long as you know I don’t necessarily endorse them. I’m just so grateful that WordPress gives people like me a voice! Where would we be without the internet and the communication tools it supplies! If it wasn’t for the internet, my dad would probably never have heard about the peroxide. And I don’t even want to think about where that might have left me.
