Only 19 days until my 1 year Cancerversary (March 24).
|Kris Carr & I at her book signing|
From just the few moments we had available to chat I could tell that Kris was completely down to earth and approachable as well as sincere and kind. It was so rejuvenating and re-inspriring to meet the person who, nearly a year ago, filled me with such hope and determination to kick some cancer ass. The Cancer Assassin was born out of the teachings and wisdom found in the pages of Kris Carr which is also the same wisdom available to anyone who cares to seek it. I would highly recommend that you do, for your own health and to stay cancer free or to manage cancer if you already have it and help eliminate it from your body. You can also find the link to her awesome blog and an Online Community of Wellness Warriors there too. They are all awesome resources and I use them nearly every day.
SUPER AWESOME I CAN'T WAIT EXCITING!
|Cabo, I'm coming soon!|
I have only been out of the country one other time (I'm not counting all the times I've been to Canada) and that was back in 2005 or so and a friend of mine and I went to Nicaragua for 10 days. It was so much fun! and so cheap too! I remember how friendly all the natives were, how warm it was and how pretty it was. Yep, I can't wait for May.

SUPER PSYCHED COMING UP SOON EXCITING!
Hope on the Slopes at Crystal Mountain is
happening on March 12, 2011 all day long. It is a ski benefit and all proceeds go to the American Cancer Society to help find a cure for cancer. As everyone knows Cancer Can Suck It! in my opinion. Those of us out there, like myself and so many others, who are living with cancer AND those who have yet to hear the words "You Have Cancer" depend so heavily upon the donations and support of their friends, family and complete strangers both financially, emotionally and often physically. Being a full time healing junkie is an extremely hard thing to do and every little bit helps and goes such a long way. You can click on Hope On the Slopes to make a donation to the American Cancer society and help Team Cancer Assassins race for a cure for cancer. You can even join our team "Team Cancer Assassins" or sign up individually to compete for awesome prizes and raise money for a good cause. Wont you join me? Lets take a run together :) Or just come on up and have some fun, you can even hear me speak at the event as the honorary guest speaker/survivor! Pretty cool huh?!
EXCITEMENT IN THE WORKS!
Knowing how important my community is to me and all of us I am calling on you, my community, to help me now. I have big ideas for The Cancer Assassin and with a little help from all of you our there in the world, my support group, fellow wellness warriors, and healing junkies, my wonderful circle of friends and family those friends and family I have yet to meet, I can make it happen!
I want to turn this into a wellness hub full of resources and research that I have done over the past year. I wan to help those people out there who have just been told "you have cancer" lighten their overwhelmingly heavy load. They already have enough on their mind just coming to terms with their diagnosis. I also want to help those who are not diagnosed with cancer keep from ever having to hear those fateful words. I want to make either thecancerassassin.com or this blog that place (or perhaps even another site who knows...) This is where I need your help. I need your questions...Do a little thinking and let me know what it is that you want to know about changing to a healthy, green lifestyle. Would you like to know what products I use? What my favorites are? Links to places that carry them or that show the chemicals in your beauty and home products . I want to build this around what people out there want to know and also tell them what they don't already know :)
The next thing I want to do is to sell these beautiful mobiles
I finished my business cards.

Gotta end on a happy note, right? :)
So, I am in the process of a project and I am hoping that with a little input from you it will become big!
I want to change around The Cancer Assassin page a bit, it may be this blog or it may turn out to be the website The Cancer Assassin. Which ever it is I really want to hear from you. My plan is to make it a place where I can share everything I have researched in the past year about how to be an advocate for your own health and wellbeing as well a my favorite products list (room by room) and links to other sites and databases where one can go to assess the toxicity of your products or to find new products or to share recipes and stories or what-ever it is that makes us happy and healthy healing junkies. So, tell me what you want to hear, what to you want to know? Feel free to email your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org .
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
Cancer Can Suck It!
