If you or someone you know has been affected by cancer, you may like to read this blog post first before watching the slideshow below : Dear Cancer, I hate you and I thank you.

Here is a glimpse into our journey with cancer.

It’s about family, friends, and all the love and support that this blogging world has afforded me.

It’s also about Michael’s stem cell harvest, hospital visits and chemotherapy.

{{ The real stuff minus the throw up.  }}

It is my way of saying

Thank you

To each and every one of you

~  from the bottom of my heart  ~


Thank you for all your epic support in our journey. Click here or on photo to see the cancer video.

VIDEO : Stomp on cancer like it stole your wallet



Today I’m going try and change the world

Gonna take it one day at a time…

I’m gonna say hello to my neighbor
Greet him with a smile

Shake the hand of a stranger
Sit and talk to him for a while

Tell someone I love them
From the bottom of my heart

Today I’m gonna try to change the world

Sending a special shout out of incredible thanks to all the beautiful souls at Princess Margaret Hospital.   Thank you for making such an epic difference in our lives and in the lives of so many.  We are so very grateful.  

Peace, love and healing…

    Like I’ve said before: Cancer is the unwelcome knock at the door. I know I’m locked and loaded.

    The world has stopped while I’ve watched your moving video and listened to the mesmeric music. Beautiful, beautiful family. You can feel the love you all have for MIchael and each other. Many special moments captured like so many fireflies, sparkling and shining while in such a dark place. Epic shit indeed.

    Wow. Wow. You know…it doesn’t always feel like fireflies, sparkling and shining…. I’m so very grateful that you reminded me of that.

    I owe you a hug.

    I thank you for this video much like I thank you for everything else that you bring. It was heart wrenching, mostly because of how beautiful and genuine your family is.. I know I spoke to you of my sister’s struggle, and of how we lost her. I know you have suffered many losses as well. I hope, pray, BELIEVE that you and your family will overcome this and be strong in it, and that your husband will be around for many, many years to come. He is EPIC gorgeous! So are you and your kids! And could you get any better than Johnny Reid? I saw him here in Vancouver last summer and I have been in LOVE with him ever since! What a sincere, beautiful person he is…….the message is fitting. Today I’m going to try and change the world…….xoxoxo

    You lucky hot diggity dawg – you had a chance to see Johnny Reid in Vancouver ?!! That must have been unbelievable !

    He lives a few hours away from us here in Ontario. I would love to meet that guy some day. He is a big supporter of Princess Margaret Hospital too. He gives back. How incredible is that ?!

    As we sat with Michaels oncologist on his recent visit, I THANKED HER..because I truly believe that her choices are why he is still walking and talking on this earth. He came soooo close to doing otherwise, if you know what I mean… so I am very very thankful.

    Princess Margaret has touched our hearts. Big time.

    Big hugs girly xx
