CHEERS TO 2013!

Happy new year has a particularly new meaning to me this year. 2013 brings about a fresh start. Cancer free and living life to the fullest! I’m excited to put last year behind me and to see what 2013 has to offer. Although 2012 was the hardest year of my life, it might have been the best. I surprised myself with how strong I can really be when challenged. I created a non profit and have been introduced to so many amazing cancer survivors who will be in my life forever. 2012 changed me for the better. Here’s a look back at how much can change in a year…
