Relay for Life Cancer Survivor Story

cancer awareness ribbonTo celebrate my five-year milestone of becoming cancer-free, my husband Mark and I traveled to Australia and New Zealand. One of the gifts of a life-threatening illness is the reminder to live fully—no matter what.  I’m thankful for the opportunity to cross off several items from my bucket list—swimming with the dolphins, riding a camel at sunrise at the base of Uluru and swinging on a zip line through the Daintree Rainforest.

Frankly, it’s taken several years of feeling cracked open to re-claim a deeper acceptance of all “that is.” At first, I felt overwhelmed by anguish as I tried to cope with the permanent side effects resulting from my cancer treatments. Despite my best efforts, I felt powerless to overcome my grief through willpower, knowledge or my current set of skills. Since then I’ve learned to process each loop of feelings and their underlying messages. As a result, I’ve shifted from surviving to expanding my capacity for thriving.
