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!

We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you....

Steve, our daughter and I -- plus Brix and Demi -- joined a group of Christmas carolers at Juvenile Hall this evening. It was a surprise for the kids who were in their rooms and peeking through their door windows to see what was happening. They were SO excited to see us. They waved, they danced around, they cheered. I don't think this has ever been done at our facility before, but now it's destined to become an annual event.

Each unit was given a donated Christmas tree. A contest was held for the best decorated unit. This is the winning tree! The girls strung together hundreds of origami doves that they had made and they also painted the paper maché ornaments. What you can't see is that they wrapped their doors to look like giant presents, an added touch that got them their prize.
