On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Three great dogs

I am a puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence, an agency that trains and provides service dogs for disabled adults and children. I have three great dogs. Brix didn't want to be a service dog so we kept him as a pet. Demi graduated and is now working with an autistic child. Beulie is currently in training and is now five months old. Parisse is just weird and was released for behavioral and medical reasons - but we adore her so she is also our family pet.

Here's my Brix...

And my Parisse...

And Beulie, who we're currently raising (she's always smiling...)
