                   The blessings of Easter are profound and yet simple:

                                   *Forgiveness: a freeing and uplifting experience for you, not        
                                                   the person who you are forgiving. And, how often we need
                                                   to forgive ourselves. 

                                   *Love: without love for others and ourself life can be empty
                                                   and without joy.

                                   *New Life: the Resurrection gives hope and perspective as
                                                    we experience life's challenges; to live a life that is good 
                                                     and noble.


                    My health challenge of having ovarian cancer reinforced how important it was for me to forgive and let go; to live each moment with gratefulness and joy; and my responsibility to do what is best for another.

                          I WISH YOU A MOST BLESSED EASTER.

God bless you, Shirley.

Thank you for your kind words, Kim. I know very little about the cancer alternative treatment centers around the country, except what I see on television. They are obviously providing wonderful care.

Wishing you a blessed day.

I am so very grateful for each day and I believe with all my heart that my role in life is to do whatever I can to spread the word about ovarian cancer, and offer hope and inspiration to all. Your support is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
