That day changed my life forever. Since then I've had more than 8 surgeries related to my BRCA1 mutation and chemotherapy. I did half of my chemo while I was pregnant. Finally giving birth to my little girl on Thanksgiving Day. My cancer gave me lots of 'gifts' that make my life more challenging - especially when homeschooling. However, I'm happy to be alive to teach my now-2nd grade daughter and now-3rd grade son. I find drawing to be relaxing and medative sometimes. Please keep an eye on my store to find Catholic, horses, flowers, and other nature products.
