Peritoneal Cancer Ribbon“LIfe isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  ~ Vivian Greene

If you’ve stumbled upon this page, I’m sorry as it means either you or a loved one has cancer. I’m a wife, mother to 2 beautiful girls and grandmother to two adorable, do no wrong grandbabies! I’m a good person and try to live a good life…so why did I get cancer? After I was first diagnosed, I asked that question a lot (as I’m sure you have as well). I found that dwelling on that question too long, not only did the lack of a good answer drive me crazy, but it started putting me in a negative mental state (not where any cancer patient should be or needs to be!) It is what it is, so I decided the only thing I could do was to put my big girl panties on and deal with it the best I possibly could! Accept the diagnosis, but not the prognosis!

So what next? How do I navigate my way through this new and not so great chapter of my life? How do I stay positive and keep moving forward? How do I  turn my lemon (cancer) into lemonade? How do I increase my longevity against all odds? Welcome to my journey through Primary Peritoneal Cancer.
