Hi, I’m Harmony, but you probably already knew that. Anyhow, this blog is going to be my view of life dealing with cancer. Or maybe dealing around cancer. Seriously, you don’t want this crappy disease defining your life, right? Right. So moving right along, since I was diagnosed in September 2009 with Stage IV cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer – who knew, right?), I’ve moved through so many emotions and I decided that cancer or not, life goes on. I’ve still got things to do, life to live, people to love.
I’m 32 and the mother of a great little boy, Blane. His dad is pretty great too. They are what motivate me to not just fight, but live. No matter if it’s a chemo week or not, we still have a life, a home, and things to do. Why waste days with fear and sadness when I can spend that time enjoying them, and my friends and family? Seriously, I could be around for decades (really, they come up with new cancer tricks all the time), so why spend that much of my time as if I’m already gone?
I want people to see that you can live with cancer, or around it…..
