Diagnosis: Cancer Survivor

Early in June 1998, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

It was discovered during a routine mammogram. I had surgery, then 6 months of chemotherapy and 7 weeks of radiation. I am done with the treatments. The prognosis is good: Stage I with excellent chances of survival.

I still believe that life is wonderful and I continue to paint beautiful subjects.

I was very touched by email that I got from so many visitors to the site, wishing me luck and offering their support and their prayers. Thank you so much to all of you, friends and strangers, that helped me during the tough times.

High praises go also to the Kaiser Permanente Oncology Staff here in Portland: doctors, nurses, counselors, and pharmacists, as well to the Kaiser Cancer Support group and the wonderful women that share their pain and offer comfort to others on their difficult journeys.

 *     I participate in the Race for the Cure event in Portland each year. It is one of the biggest such events in the nation! My husband prepared a photo diary of the 2001 race to share with you.
