Happy Sunday everyone! Sorry I haven't been as on top of posting as usual. Its been a crazy week. I cannot believe I will be graduating from law school in a matter of 2 months. My week has been packed with law school work leaving barely an hour in the day to put up posts :(
I also did an interview this week with the Public Affairs Department at Nova Southeaster University. One of the Associate Directors came across my blog and ask if he could sit down with me to talk about my experience. Hopefully they decide to tell my story, it would be a great way to raise some awareness. Going back to law school after cancer treatments was a difficult journey to say the least. Never mind the emotional and physical struggles I had, financial was/is terrible difficult too. As some of you know my health insurance dropped me so I have unpaid medical bills hurting my credit. My family has been tapped out making sure I have/had all the prescriptions and care I needed to survive. And, cancer has left me unable to work while I try to recovery and finish school. This makes it extremely difficult to go to school. I know I'm not the only cancer survivor dealing with these difficulties. There are some scholarships out there but there needs to be more and they need to be easily accessible for us tired fighters who just don't have the energy left over to wrangle with lenders.
This week I also got my free magazine that I had signed up for a couple weeks ago. CURE is a magazine dedicated to Cancer Updates, Research and Education. This magazine is FREE to cancer patients, survivors and caregivers in the U.S. If you are none of those you can still get a subscription to this magazine for $20.00 annually. Its a wonderful resource. Don't worry if you don't get the magazine because I will be posting about the articles I think are most helpful.
Finally this week I have been spending what free time I have with my sister and niece. My baby niece is the joy of my life. Watching her smile, discover things, laugh, I just can't describe how happy she makes me. When I first found out my sister was pregnant over a year ago I was worried seeing her baby would make me sad. Sad because I can no longer have children after the cancer. However my baby niece Anika only makes me happy. She is such a joy and I am grateful everyday to have her in my life. My sister just started a blog so please stop by and check it out.
Well that was my week in a nut shell. I have to start doing some homework and will be at it all day. Next week I need to figure out my next surgery, PET and other fun medical stuff. Hope everyone is having a great week.
