Just turned 50! Two kids, a son, 23 and daughter, 19. I have been married 27 years and I volunteer at my local hospital. My nurses that helped me through Biochemotherapy touched my life so much that I wanted to give back, and since I have a medical working background, that was the perfect place for me. Avid cross stitcher and I own a rescue dog that I love!
