This was actually a comforting video to put together. I think I’ve talked about this in so many ways over the last year – And so many times I have not felt able to just be totally honest. This is for anybody that wants to hear a personal part of my life.

Today

Today was a good day. The last few days have been good days actually. A lot of days haven’t felt that way lately.

Steve and I went out and enjoyed some food, beer on the patio and some lovely sunshine. When we were walking home we stumbled upon an abandoned skipping rope. I haven’t jumped rope in what feels like a lifetime. So naturally I needed to do so once more. lol It was a silly, fun time! And then we walked home through the forest and got bit by some mosquitos. But it was all worth it. It was a beautiful day to Get Up!

Steve is the one that keeps me going – keeps pushing me to get up and keep moving forward. It’s the ones that support and lift me up that make it a little easier. 🙂

From the beginning of my brain tumour journey, it’s been the Hamilton group of hospitals that has been there every step of the way – Starting with my surgery at Hamilton General Hospital. Then Juravinski Cancer Centre – which especially holds a dear place in my heart. It’s where a majority of my treatment has taken place – where I have met and been treated by the most incredible, kind, caring medical staff.
I didn’t know who the Juravinskis were – Just that there was a cancer centre named after them – My amazing cancer centre. And then today I saw this article and video. They are donating even more! I feel honoured and so very blessed that I have been able to receive my treatment at this special group of hospitals. The doctors and nurses I have encountered make me believe in humanity and that there will always be hope to carry on.
Thank you to Charles and Margaret Juravinski!
