The world keeps spinning around me a million miles an hour and I feel like I’m on pause, trying to find my place. My dad called me the other day and reminded me about how important it is for us to do the things we want to do and live our lives to the fullest.

I recently had the opportunity to join Dr. Deming on the MercyOne Des Moines Cancer Education Series podcast. We talk about my experience as a cancer survivor, my experience with Above + Beyond Cancer, and how Dr. Deming and I got to know each other. Thought I’d share it on my blog!

I’m so tired of living scan to scan, treatment to treatment. When we found ourselves back in the MRI waiting room at Mayo Clinic on Wednesday, I turned to Alicia and said “Should we just get the hell out of here?

I had an MRI scan on my brain on June 17th. Everything looked great! No changes since the last scan. I finally mustered up the courage to ask Dr. R what I could expect as far as recurrence and lifespan. It’s something I’ve been avoiding asking the doctors for a few reasons.
