Ependymoma, diagnosed Christmas Eve 1997
"The first thing I noticed was that I am given so many choices. If one thing doesn't work, the doctors try something else. They don't slam the door shut. They keep opening new doors. I've bought an angel every year since my diagnosis. Now, I have a collection. I've learned to celebrate each year, and to keep hoping for more."
