At the age of 34 I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. My course of treatment was radical hysterectomy, 25 external radiation treaments and 3 internal treatments. Six years later I am still alive and kicking, although life found another way of bringing me to my knees. My once energetic, vibrant, fierce warrior, best friend of a husband began suffering from some illness that we couldn't put a name to. In Sept 2008, my husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Through a great oncology team he was placed in a clinical trial group and along with the standard treatments made a miraculous turn around. Eventually, after 16 months, the cancer caught back up to us and took him from my world.
