Spring Hill, Florida
Cancer has been a blessing. I go to the clinic for chemo and everyone has this gloomy look, so I bring them out of the fear factor. They think they'll be dead tomorrow. They won't. I was told I have Stage 4, and I've been in remission for three months! I have miracles every day. I try daily, no matter how I feel, to look as good as I can, because when you look better, you feel better. I put on makeup. I've lost half my eyelashes. My hair is falling out. My nose is too big. It occurred to me in the past to have a nose job, but at this point, I'm at such peace with myself that my nose is just fine.
