I woke up feeling numb today. I am so sad with how the world is right now. Not only have we had to deal with a pandemic, but now we have to deal with racism and riots. I am trying to stay away from social media. I know everyone has opinions and I don’t want… Continue reading In the middle of a pandemic…
I wish life was simple and that living with Metastatic Breast Cancer was a straight and narrow path, but unfortunately it is a rollercoaster of emotional distress and medical jargon. Essentially, you don't get a break, and when you think you are in the clear and that you can finally breath, something happens to spiral… Continue reading This is living with Metastatic Breast Cancer…
I get asked all the time, why the color green? Why "Green Ninja"? Why the green hair? Well, here's an answer for that..... Green hasn't always been my favorite color.

Richard and I were finally able to go on our European Cruise. We spent 14 days in Europe and 11 days on the Celebrity Reflection. Orginally, we were supposed to take the cruise in September, but Hurricane Irma made sure that didn't happen. We were dissappointed, but we dealt with it. I feel like it… Continue reading The trip of a lifetime….

A lot of people have asked me why I dyed my hair green. I thought it would be obvious from my "Green Ninja" persona, but then I have to remember that not everyone knows my story. But honestly, I have wanted green hair since I was in high school. Unfortunately, my mom never let me… Continue reading Bring it on 2018!!!
On Tuesday, December 12th I was supposed to finally have my reconstructive surgery. I was excited. I was on the bed, all marked up and with an IV in my hand.
