Carcinoid Cancer Survivor

Someone once said that the minute you decide to fight your cancer after diagnosis you can call yourself a survivor. I like that. On the morning of Tuesday, April 27, 2010, I was diagnosed with appendiceal carcinoid cancer. On the evening of Tuesday, April 27, 2010 I became a carcinoid cancer survivor.


  1. Hi,

    I don't know you but know your mother. Your mother is a very special person to me...thus you will also become one. I believe in the power of prayer and will be praying to God for his healing for you.

    You are a very special lady. Although this will be a difficult time for you I know that everything will turn out okay. I believe that sometimes God likes to give us a little nudge to help us become stronger and to find out who we truly are. I know that Jackie O is a source of strength for you but also look for your mom as an inspiration. She has overcome many obstacles and has always done them gracefully. You will be a survivor. Our thooughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Thanks Theresa :)
    Your love is felt. My mom has always been my favorite are right - I'm one tough cookie because of her.
