I have always been very, very suspicious of charities, especially things like those who claim to help childhood cancer. I have, personally, never benefited from one no matter what I was going through in life. I've seen my fair share of tragedy and loss, yet no organization has ever helped me one tiny bit.
This Christmas, more than ever before, I feel holiday joy. After going through being diagnosed with cancer, and surviving a major surgery, I'm more grateful than ever to have some good friends, and a healthy and happy family, to share my life with.
Finally got out of our nasty duplex and into our "forever home". Love the place. Looking forward to many years here. Basement has a fantastic gaming room/playroom with its own entrance. All the kids have their own bedroom too.
