Where I is at..

Hello Friends.....

Your response has been overwhelming to say the least! I am hugely grateful to have so many amazing people in my life. Thank you all so much for your generosity and responding hastily with your ideas, love, donations and time. You are all making this tough time in my life much more manageable.

I am keeping positive and feeling good about my prospective treatments. I am aiming to begin February 20th and should be in treatment until March 20th, just a bit of spring cleaning, right?

Until then, I will continue my health regime. Unsightly,  yet oh so tasty, green concoctions (pictured above), nutrient rich foody goodness,  Acupuncture, Reiki, swimming, laughing, crying (it's ok, cleanses the eyeballs.... and the cat), dancing (fairly awkwardly, with the curtains closed!), spending time with wonderful people, and living each day like I mean it!

There are many fundraising events in the works, here in Vancouver and internationally. Here are some of the amazing events being planned so far..mark your calendars!:

Lots more news to come! Again, my sincere thanks goes out to everyone.

This is how it is..

Okay, now that you've had a good laugh, and I've completely embarrassed myself...we can get a little more serious.
Many of you reading this will already know that I was diagnosed with metastatic cancer 3 years ago. A ridiculously rare type of cancer (Myxofibrosarcoma...say that 10 times fast!) that came with a label that read ''incurable.'' Do I believe it? No. I am up for the challenge and so far have managed it well for the past 3 years, through diet, exercise, positive attitude, Acupuncture, etc. On the conventional side, I have had 3 rounds of radiation and 8 operations that have left me with a bad ass gangster limp, and painful sleepless nights..but I keep on keeping on because life is beautiful and I love my life.
I have recently been told, by the conventional world, that there is nothing else that can be done for me. The cancer is progressing slowly, but surely, and I'm left with the decision ''what the f#%k do I do now?'' I have spent many hours racking my brains, researching, crying, feeling angry, scared and fed up. The only option I have now is to seek treatment out of country, which is looking somewhat promising. 
This is good. I still have options. But unfortunately these options come at a massively huge price...a whooping $30,000 at least. There aren't enough funds in my close circle to cover the costs, so this is where some big ass fundraising comes into play. Various events are already in the works and hopefully you can help. The beautiful miss Olivia is planning a wee shindig at the Prophouse in February. A silent auction is being planned by the fam and friends. My wonderful friend, Lynn,  is running a half-marathon to raise $$. Nat, Ollie and Cass have teamed up and are organizing a fabulous music event. And many others have offered their amazing talents to contribute to my cause. 
At this point, I need all the help I can get, whether it be in donations of money, ideas, talents or time. I will keep you all posted on my progress and upcoming events. In the meantime if you need to contact me, please do so at
Thank you all for your continuing love and support!
