Back on the Horse

     Happy Belated 2015. Like a lot of things in my life, "blogmas" didn't go quite as planned but I hope you did enjoy the few posts I did manage to get put-up.
     I'm sorry it's been so long since I've posted but I decided to take a little time away from the web; I needed to work through some things in my head & in my heart before I felt "ready" enough to get back on the horse, or in this case...back on the blog.
      From now on, "Goodbye Dancer, Hello Cancer" will be in honor of my fellow colorectal warrior & "butt-y", Mrs. Amanda Stewart. Amanda was a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a hero, an inspiration, & an amazing friend. She fought a fight no one should have to fathom, let alone experience but she did it with a smile & her famous "thumb's up" attitude. She became an angel on December 31, 2014 at the much-too-young age of 28. My promise to her was to continue to share our stories about CRC, colostomys, the importance of colonscopies, & most importantly - debunking the age myth that accompanies colorectal cancer. I was diagnosed 2 months after I turned 26; Amanda was diagnosed at only 22-years-old. It's time for change & I am going to do everything I can to make that a reality.

...forever in our hearts...
     I've also been in touch with the Colon Cancer Alliance to become part of their "Never Too Young" Campaign so I will be updating you on that progression as it becomes more available to me. 
:)

thank you for your patience,
talk to you very soon.

love & lyrics,
- LISA -
