Questions, Comments & Thoughts
The easiest and hardest thing I believe one can do is to totally surrender...
Not to defeat, but to Faith.
floydwarriors.com is here to help you not take cancer lying down... but LOOKING UP!
The night I told my sisters I had cancer...
I was driving to their home & had a clear vision
it was of a large ocean- the one I was just tossed into. I thought I could swim and swim to save myself, struggling against the current and put up a really good fight to live. I thought I if I could see the shore at least, I could try to swim. I thought I could do that a few days without drowning. Reality hit and I realized I could not save myself.
I then imagined not fighting; lying back and totally surrendering my need, my instinctive urge to fight. I would float and rely on the great unknown that lie beneath me that I knew would hold me much longer if I simply let it. This great ocean I was tossed into I once thought was my demise, soon turned into a sea that would save me. My position hadn’t changed at all but my perception did.
So yes, I guess people do seem to find God when they hit rock bottom that is because people usually choose to swim and nearly drown before surrendering, not to defeat but to faith. This realization the night I was diagnosed was the most liberating moment of my life. As crazy as it sounds cancer freed me.
The day my surgeon told me I definitely had cancer, he assured there were a lot of support groups available. My immediate reaction was, "But who is going to come in and put food on my table, clean and take care of my husband and baby?" He said nothing like that, as far as he knew, existed.
"I guess I'll have to start that organization!" I said.
That was January 2009

9th Annual PROJECT EASTER BUNNY
HOPPING MARCH 6th-16th, 2018
It was Easter Sunday in 2009, and I simply could not make a basket for my son. Although he was only a baby, I always dreamed of my son's first true Easter. While there was much I couldn't do because of the dibilitating effects of chemo, what pained me the most was what I was unable to do for my family.
My sadness turned to hope when I realized that year I would be too ill, but not again! Making more than one basket in 2010 would be my goal and perfectly fulfill our organization's mission of "Dinner is Done, Dishes are Clean and the KIDS ARE OK!"
Holding true to that promise, floydwarriors.com has delivered thousands of Easter Baskets over the past 8 years to several oncology centers across the Capital Region.
