In Gratitude of My Rockin’ Bod

Blog July 27, 2011

I am healthy, and I am feeling great.  All follow-up biopsies have come back clean.  That’s right, baby.

From this Day Forward

Blog July 9, 2011

On Friday, July 1, I got a phone call from my dermatologist telling me I had melanoma. That was 8 days ago. Since that call, life has been quite a whirlwind.

After a few... View Article

Blog June 20, 2011
