                                  Thank you all for your kind words. I am so glad I found this website. And just cause I am free of this beast, I will not leave…I will stay here and offer words of encouragement to anyone who needs it.

                                  A good friend of mine gave me a book called "The Secret" by author Rhonda Byrne. The tenet of the book is that focused positive thinking can have life-changing results such as increased wealth, health, and happiness. I hope you all read it and I hope it helps you as it has helped me.

                                        Well, seeing as we're giving out book suggestions I'd like to add one which I've found extremely helpful since being diagnosed with melanoma.

                                        The Bartender's Black Book: The Drink Recipe Collection for the 21st Century, Sixth Edition

                                        It's a gem, and I feel a little selfish for keeping it to myself all this time…
