Knock Knock…It’s Cancer.

So here I was, a month ago, thinking I had it all.

I was taping Sadie Nardini’s new TV show, my classes were growing by the day and all seemed right in the world. It’s so funny how plans have a way of falling apart. In fact, the more I “planned” my future that’s when the Universe decided to test my faith.

I’ve just been diagnosed with cancer at age 32. In the words of my surgeon, the cancer is a nasty little bugger, no less. So it’s time to show cancer and the world how to laugh and love not only when my “plans” are working out but also when they don’t.
