About Me

Welcome to my hangout! Some random words to both describe me and describe the things I love:

Fun-loving. Smiles. Loves to be inspired and hopes to inspire others. Osteosarcoma, melanoma and breast cancer survivor. National cancer advocate and public speaker. Animal lover (horses and dogs are my favs). Loves traveling to explore new places, meet people and experience adventures. Addicted to reading and writing (journalism major!). Sunshine. Fresh air. Family. Friends. Romantic at heart. Tries to always be an optimist. Outdoors. Happy. Peace.

Know why I started this blog? This blog is about living beyond cancer, and simply living life to the fullest! I sprinkle in cancer and health tips and experiences with my adventures in exploring the world around me, fun activities and more. It may sometimes seem random, but it’s about living life, sharing kindness and smiles, seeking adventures and new ideas, helping others and finding happiness and love. As a three-time cancer survivor, I feel gratitude for each day. I’m told that I am a never-ending optimist – I take those comments as very kind compliments. Besides, doesn’t it feel so much better to be happy and positive than blah and negative? Life is a journey. As a cancer survivor and simple human being, I’m blessed to be here to experience it.
