                                                                                       UPDATED: 2 April 2016


2016 is an exciting year for me; it is the 21st anniversary

of the diagnosis of my Carcinoid on 10 May 1995.

I am a 21 year survivor / winner!

This web site was 19 years old on April 27, 2016.

April 23, 2014 I began Dialysis every evening at home
due to being Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease.    


My book
Becoming Sunny Susan is now available in softcover and ebook!

My story is one many of you can identify with – an uplifting look at a life that I am determined to live well, despite all the obstacles I have been dealt. At the heart of the story is the idea of LIVING with cancer. It took eight years to correctly diagnose my rare disease, Carcinoid/ Neuroendocrine Tumors. Then, they said I would die in just a few more years. That was 19 years ago, and here I am! How have I faired? Very well. Read the book to find out how I have lived a happy life, even with cancer.

Would you help to spread the positive word by telling your friends, by gifting the book, and by posting a review for other readers on the www.amazon.com  page? We know how valuable a positive recommendation can be.

Since 1996 --- when I first located others with Carcinoid --- I have answered every email sent to me, although some replies were delayed longer than I liked. I am NO longer able to reply to all e-mails due to the volume and other things going on in my life (all good).  I do love hearing from others, but an unable to reply to all individually.  I shall not forget my many Carcinoid friends and of course shall reply to you … as time permits.  This web site will be 19  years old on April 27, 2016, and my plan is to keep it updated for many years.

Since my husband "retired" I am away from my computer for days, and sometimes, weeks at a time.  Yes, there is wireless internet and we have tried that a number of places.  But, if I deal with email when we are away from home then it is not a "restful vacation" for me.
