There will be love

After four whirlwind, fairy tale days in Los Angeles, I'm sitting quietly at home with the view of my horses in front of me and only my thoughts for company. Cancer stayed in the shadows this week as treasured moments were spent with friends and fellow cancer survivors. Together, we traveled to a world where dreams begin and cancer nightmares end. Suzanne Rico opened her magnificent home and shared her amazing family with us, Diana Lomelin transformed our hair and makeup, and Dalia MacPhee dressed us like queens. We floated through the glitz and glamour of the Red Carpet and cheered at the People's Choice Awards. For one incredible day and night, cancer completely disappeared. Even as cancer took center stage at the fabulous GBK Golden Globes Luxury Gifting Lounge, the focus shifted to creating awareness about liver tumors, of making sure that no one faces a diagnosis like ours alone, and to ensuring that resources and support are available to everyone! It was a gift to let so many see that we truly are living with cancer and not dying from it. I thank Michael Mazzella for opening the door to this great event and to Gavin Kelly and his incredible team for such an amazing opportunity. The ripples of our hope, combined with those we met, will be limitless! One by one, my friends headed home talking about the wonderful time. Each was cognizant of the reality that awaits. I, too, left behind thoughts of my upcoming scan and the chemo treatment that tomorrow brings. A part of me wishes that I could wind back the clock and relive the magical moments of a cancer free week. I would like to freeze them in time. I'm not excited about treatment tomorrow but I know that life moves forward. As it does, new wonders will be discovered in spite of cancer. Among them, there will be miracles and there will be milestones; there will be hope and, above all else, there will be love...
