I'll never capitalize cancer

I have alot going on in my life, more than just cancer and chemo. Sure it's a big part of my life right now, but it's not the most important part of my life. You will never see me spell it with a capital "c".

I'm a Wife and Mom. I love my Family. I have good Friends. We do fun stuff and dumb stuff and sometimes we argue and then we laugh again. We go to work and to the grocery store and we go swimming and have birthday parties and get ready for the first day of school.

I keep saying that I don't want ovarian cancer to define me, but sometimes I just can't help it.

A good friend put it this way for me "cancer may be defining your life for the moment, but it is not your entire life. You seem to just make time for it." That made me feel better.

If you want to see it from the beginning, my cancer story begins in March.

The rest of my story is happening now.

I just learned a new phrase Basal Cell Carcinoma, Not mine, but someone I love very much. Kinda scary when you here the word Cancer.

And guess what? May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Here I am all concerned about Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer ... I use sunscreen, just never really considered Skin Cancer. Check out the pictures at the link, you'd be surprised. I thought it was just a pimple that wouldn't go away.

By the way, (insert shameless plug here) Advocare has an excellent skin care line and the Daily Moisturizer has an SPF 15.

Hmm - I am going to have to look into this further. That Gluten Free diet thing may get put on hold for awhile.
