My Profile


Why I came to WebMD
I was in the process of doing research after having been diagnosed with DCIS in January, 2003, and came across this board. I'd never belonged to one before so it was really new territory for me. However, finding all the members not only receptive, but giving and caring kept me returning. I am proud to be a member too! I reside in East Lansing, MI.

Where I can be found on WebMD
Breast Cancer Exchange
Breast Cancer Friend To Friend and Pinkie Exchange

What I Like
Books:

Mysteries, Biographies, Fantasy
Movies/TV: Eclectic taste in both. But Lord save me from reality shows!!
Music: Folk, show tunes, old standards, some jazz
Hobbies: Theatre, writing, travel, dealing with "Harry"!
Other: email: billem55@hotmail.com

What Inspires Me
Loving, caring people who meet great odds with dignity and courage, and never loose sight of what is important in life. In my own life I have had many such individuals. I was blessed with two of the greatest in my parents...I am so proud to be their daughter! And there is no way on earth I could have ever found a better husband for me and father for our daughter. I am very fortunate! My five grandchildren are definitely the frosting on my delicious life!

My Favorite Quotes
"Anything a man can dream is possible."

"There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle."

Albert Einstein
