Five years ago today I was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma cancer and given 6 months to live. I am thankful for every day I have been given, an amazing husband, Michael Stratos who would not give up, his positive energy kept me alive to fight another day, my supportive family and friends who hung in there with me through all the stress and I can not forget all those amazing doctors who are working hard to discover a cure. We continue to discover each day where this journey we call life is taking us but let's not forget in the end it's the ride that counts. What a wonderful ride I am having. You can't ask for any more than that out of life.
