The Life List

I am not a big bucket list person but after being diagnosed with cancer in 2012 and realizing none of us are guaranteed any length of time here on earth, I decided to fully LIVE. No more wishing my life away.


So while I’m here and cancer is kept at bay, I am going to work on this list of things that I truly want to experience.
