Why This Thanksgiving Is So Special To Me......

Only thru God's grace and divinity am I able to bring this blog to you today. For a year ago, I had just finished my cancer treatment and my future was extremely unsure and was day to day. The seven weeks of radiation and chemotherapy had taken its toll. I had lost over 60 pounds and shriveled down to almost nothing. click the picture for more on my cancer survival story. Today, I am presently cancer free and happy to report that I am back to full throttle and going full speed.

The picture on the left is how I spent most of last year, with a tube attached to my stomach so I could obtain liquids and canned formula for nutrition. By now you are starting to get the picture of how thankful I am to be alive. And below is what I am thankful for today:

Thankful to be able to eat solid foods (this year I can Eat Turkey & Dressing)
Thankful to be able to live & see my family, friends and co workers.
Thankful to be able to finally be painfree from radiation sickness
Thankful to be able to walk closer to God and be at peace with myself
Thankful to be able to give to the Nevada Cancer Center which saved me
Thankful to be able to practice Las Vegas real estate which is my greatest passion

And finally, thankful that I may inspire someone else who is suffering from cancer and has lost hope.
