One Year Anniversary of Diagnosis

        Today marks an important date for me, today is the one year anniversary of my Leukemia diagnosis. One year ago today, I was rushed to the hospital in north Jersey, and admitted on floor 4, the Bone Marrow Transplant floor. It was one year ago that our lives changed forever, I was whisked away from my children, my husband, my home, my life, and introduced into the world of blood work, gruesome procedures, chemotherapy, hourly temperatures, endless doctors and nurses, and hours of loneliness, helplessness and silence.

    It's amazing that here I am one year later, sitting in front of my computer, All My Children is on in the background, Luciana is napping upstairs (a little under the weather) and things are crazy, in a great way. Life is almost, dare I say normal. Almost. How ironic that our first students today are two children of a nurse who administered Chemo to me during my treatments. Now today, she'll come in with her children, we'll have small chat, laugh a little and the day will continue. It's amazing to think, how much my life has changed in this year.

     But, things are so exciting right now.  There is this wonderful foundation based out of northern New Jersey called the Smile Forever Foundation. They financially assist families and individuals who are fighting cancer and autism. The director of Smile Forever is a friend of mine who I met online during my hospitalization, who underwent a Bone Marrow Transplant 3 years ago to treat her Leukemia. Today she is doing amazing things, directing this wonderful foundation. 

     I am very excited that we will be performing with Beatlemania at a fundraiser concert event in May. It will be a wonderful event for the whole family, so please tell all your friends and family and come out and support this wonderful cause! There will be lots of extra things going on which I will continue to update here. But remember to mark it in your calendars!!
