What I do?

I write.

13 DIAMONDS – Life Before Death From A Child’s Perspective is a story about family. It is about hope and all beautiful life has to offer, until the inevitable strikes and a brain tumor the size of a tennis ball made itself at home, intruding in the happy lives of a loving family. 13 Diamonds portrays the feelings and views of a young girl who witnessed her mother, the brightest, most beautiful woman she knew, slowly die – taken by this horrific form of cancer. It is about strength, life, death, beauty, grief, and most importantly, it is a story about love.

  1. I just began truly delving into your blog and I absolutely love it. I connect with it in so many ways.
    I am a brain cancer survivor, but your blog helps me to see things from the caregiver’s perspective. Sometimes I question whether it is easier for me as the cancer patient, the person who fools myself into believing I have the control over this, rather than for my helpless family and friends who just have to watch it all unfold.
    I also have an incredible, overwhelming wanderlust, which in a way cancer has taken from me, but it has also stoked a fire in me (okay an obsession) that I just need to get out there into the world, to far-off places and escape!
    I look forward to reading so much more from you.
