I live quietly by myself with my two cats in Massachusetts, USA. I take part in the St. Judes Research study for Long Term Follow-up of Pediatric Cancer survivors. I enjoy watching sports- football, baseball, basketball.. in that order... maybe sometimes a hockey game but I can't claim that I'm addicted to it. And of course, i have my computer and the writing that I do. I write... slowly... bits and pieces come together to form cohesive thoughts. Originally diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma in 1986 when I was 18, I have been free of the disease since July 1988. My challenges have and continue to be the ever evolving side effects of the cure that saved me.
