  • Chemo #1 Down

    I realize that I didn’t share my experiences with my first chemo infusion yet.  It wasn’t because I don’t care about all of you.  It was because the first 5 days sucked and then I went back to work.  So grab your cup of coffee tea* and read a story. Last Friday was infusion day. […]

  • Be the change you wish to see

    I know you’ve been inundated with “buy my candy” and “please won’t you help the children.” ?While I do believe that what I do through Sweet Hope I also recognize that there are other organizations out there that need support. ?I also know there are artisans around the world trying to make a living selling […]

  • A very merry Christmas

    Ok, this is the last time I’m going to write about Sweet Hope… this week. I know you are tired of getting brow beaten by me, but I can’t help it.? This is something I’m passionate about.? Even more so than how much I dislike Sarah Palin and that is saying a lot. Earlier this […]
