July 2018 Update:
My work and words are now on my new platform: The Patient Story. Please take a look and let me know what you think! Big hugs.
I've spent one-third of my life as a TV news reporter. Just as I was kicking off a new storytelling platform (this site) to try and connect people by telling their stories, I got the call: You have cancer.
So for now, here is my story.
BLOG INTRO: (posts are below) This is the best snapshot of my life before I found out about the cancer. It's Tim's company holiday party photobooth (made especially for the party by the artist - the guy who's featured in our picture haha) and I'm not feeling 100%, but I'm having a lot of fun! I was in the middle of...
Building this site, The Refract, as my main work while I continued to freelance report for NBC
Planning our holiday trip to Germany & Morocco (POSTPONED)
Finishing plans of our home renovations after nine long months of work (!)
Coordinating last minute wedding plans with just two months left till the big day
I mean...what a lucky gal, right? It's funny, I always thought, "Life is too good. Ugh. Something bad's going to happen." Yes, totally overboard-anxious. And I know it's dumb to link that back to the C-word, but it's kind of hard not to. Anyway, I understand more than ever how important it is to relax and just cherish life. Stress is useless and stupid.
So here are my thoughts day by day... maybe multiple times a day. It won't be my best writing, but it's more of a cathartic release. And it's a hell of a lot better than Googling around for a diagnosis ;p.
