Yes I have been mia- happy 4th of July

Blogging....why have I not taken the time to blog???? When I first starting finding out all my bad news from drs it was my only way to process all my thoughts. When I was going through my treatments it was a way to let everyone know how I was. I knew people were afraid to call. It meant so much to see all the comments. It really pushed me through. I was great to see people praying for me all over the world. The Internet is an amazing thing. So now life has gotten so busy that I have not taken the time to blog. I totally miss it. It is time that I really need. So I will be visiting blogs that I use to visit, looking for new ones and blogging about what is going on. I hope everyone is well. I hope everyone is taking time to slow down and enjoy every little thing. Cant wait to catch up!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY to all my military friends. Thank you for all you do:)

I have been in shock the last few days. 2 and half years ago I found out that I was going to be fighting for my life. It was the worst day of my life. 9 months of treatments that dragged me down and made me feel like I could not live my normal life. Once I finished my treatments I was thankful for being alive and for all the good that was surrounded around me. I knew at that moment that I wanted to do something. I had a very clear picture that God put in front of me. I just did not know that I would be strong enough to follow through. In a short time Cindy's Hope Chest was a vision that become a reality. A true dream that I am able to be a part of everyday.

During the last 14 months so many wonderful people have come into my life. The women that I have bonded with during this fight will be friends for life. I am very proud of what we have done and excited to see what we will do.

One of the wonderful things that CHC has been blessed with was being chosen as a finalist for the Toyota 100 cars for good program. It was a contest on facebook. On Monday there were 5 nonprofit organizations competing for votes. We created a video to show the country what CHC does and what we would use our new car for. It was a fun and thrilling day. I watched a community and beyond come together to rally votes for CHC. It was amazing to watch and it made me feel like they were fighting for all the women who have and are currently battling this terrible disease.

At the end of the evening CHC had the most votes! So Toyota will be delivering us a Highlander Hybrid. I still can not believe it but you all know me I do BELIEVE:)

Thanks to everyone who voted and supported us. Thanks to Toyota for believing in us. We are so excited.

If you are just reading and you have not heard of their program go to facebook and vote for your favorite organization today at Toyota USA, 100 cars for good!

YAY!!!!!! More to come.....Ill keep you up to date to join us when we receive it.

I can't believe it is coming to an end!

I am not sure where to start. I have been dealing with approaching my husbands 20th yr of active duty service. It has been an amazing journey. I am posting the next few days my feelings good and bad. What are the right choices.....Is the Army being fair. How do I feel. I have always been very real and up front with my battle with BC but been very careful about being an Army wife but it is time for my side.

Hoping you have a wonderful day!
