Category Archives: The Education of Me


Well, I did it.  I got accepted to a nursing program.  I’m ecstatic.  I applied for one other program, but it doesn’t really matter because the one that was “reasonably priced and close to home” was the one that accepted me.  I start this Fall.

I think this is where I thank cancer for lighting a fire under my booty to do more.  To not let my fears overcome me.  To listen to my heart and not the voice of impossibility.

My mantra lately has been “I will not let cancer win.”  I beat cancer physically, but I will not let it hold me back emotionally.  I believe it will always be a challenge but I am learning to live in today and only take one step at a time.  Leave wiggle room, but set goals.

I am one step closer to my dream!
