A Childhood Cancer Survivor Blogging about the World of Childhood Cancer

I’m so exctied!  School is out for the summer!  That means I get to write and dance and write some more and dance some more!  YES!  Heaven!  Had a great day at dance today.  I’m starting to get a lot stronger.  Oh……almost forgot!  I auditioned for the San Luis Obispo Civic Ballet a couple of weeks ago and I received the news on Friday that I was accepted!  Wow.  Never would I have imagined even six months ago that I would be dancing with a company.  I am blessed.  I not only LOVE dance from the bottom of my heart but apparently, others think I’m pretty good at it (hahahahaha)…..everyone wins!  I will have more time to update my site now, so look for new stuff! 

P.S.  I now officially have over 50 pages typed and in book format.  Probably around 150-ish are written….maybe closer to 200!

Children’s Miracle Network

I got interviewed live on the 2009 Children’s Miracle Network Telethon today to help raise money for Cottage Hospital, where I was treated.  They showed my vignette (updated!) from last year’s telethon.  It was really fun.  Saw Dr. Dan and his kids……they rock.  Also saw Jaynie, the child-life specialist who I fell in love with on day one.  In total, a little over half of a million dollars was raised between the two days.  Pretty awesome, huh?  It will all go toward the new Cottage Hospital they’re building next door and their pediatric services.  Feels really great to be able to raise money for the place that saved my life………it’s the least I can do!
