I welcome you to my page and remind you of the importance of doing monthly self breast exams and having a mammogram as your Dr. reccomends.
I care beacause I am a Breast Cancer Survivor, and these things saved my life!

12 points that make Spark People work for me.

Here's my recipe for a New Life:

To make each day better than the day before!
T remember what's important to me and that each new day is a gift from God.
To organize my time and make the most of everyday.
To keep my home orderly, organized and clean.
To take better care of my health by eating the most nutritious diet possible.
To take part in a regular physical fitness program with a daily exercise routine, supplemented by other activities I enjoy depending on the season.
To live my life with respect to all of God's creatures.
To improve my mind, body and spirit on a daily basis.
To support and give care to those who need it.
To ask for support when I need it.
To spend money on necessary needs, avoiding wasteful spending .
This is why I am a Spark Person, to live a purpose filled and goal orientated life!

I am a Breast Cancer survivor who has found the courage to win! I find strength in my vision for a full, active and healthy life after breast cancer.

    It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don't give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful! -Steve Maraboli

    Isn't it silly to let an inanimate object determine how happy you'll be today?
