Perk # 26: Cancer Gave Me My 15 Minutes Of Fame

Me with my biggest fan, my mom.

I have heard it said that during a lifetime, everyone will get their 15 minutes of fame.  I guess you can say that  cancer has given me MY 15 minutes of fame.  The number of visitors to my blog is far beyond my expectations, and I have even been recognized in public.  I am very grateful to those who read my blog, for the positive comments, and especially the shares.  While yesterday was a very rough chemo day for me, I was completely buzzed on the positive comments, and counting the hits on my blog.   (For my Newfie friends, it felt almost as exciting as watching the Julie and Clyde election numbers.)

Tip:  Just because you have a potentially life threatening illness does not mean you have to lie down and die.  New doors can open for you at any time in your life!

  3. Hi Florence,
    I just finished reading and I wanted to let you know that I love it! Your blog is sweet and insightful and funny, but also encouraging and inspiring. Thank you so much for sharing it. Hope, positivity, humour and prayer are things that we could all use more of.
    Sending you love and prayers…

  4. It is amazing for you to have such a positive outlook on your Cancer. A lot of times when we are faced with illness we can get caught up in the “pity party” but you have found it in yourself with the help of your support system to rise above that and see the better side of it. It shows the rest of us just what can be done through sheer determination and a belief. As I was reading your blog I remembered something I read and thought it would apply to you and your journey. It goes like this”The way of all peace is to scale the mountain of self. Loving others makes the climb down easier. We see all things darkly until love lights the lamp of our soul.” Take care and God Bless!

  5. You truly are an inspiration to us all Florence! I too am a firm believer in the power of prayer and I will continue to pray for your speedy recovery. Keep positive and God bless you and your family.
