Approaching the 6th month mark
As I was typing the date on a document today it took me by surprise. I thought, how could this be? Almost 6 months since my diagnosis? Time flew by...and not much has changed with my body. I've waited for some rash to spring up over night...Or perhaps run out of breath while I was climbing up the bleachers at a game.... But, nothing yet. So, I've decided to stop looking for "it". I'm sure "whatever it is" will find me in due time, but for now my search for "it" will end. I've decided to use my energy and time making a difference. Beginning tonight, I've decided that for every dollar I spend at Starbuck's through the end of the year, I will match that amount in a donation to the Bonnie J. Addairo, Breath Away From the Cure Foundation. Don't get me wrong, I'm not doing this to make me stop going to Starbucks...I chose something I love to do and paired it up with something I can't wait to be a part of. Sounds like a winning proposition to me. I want our part of the country to be known for something bigger than Coffee...perhaps Lung Cancer Screeening...
That's it for today. Can't wait to get a coffee tomorrow :)
Dreaming of bigger and better things,
