Cancer Won’t Stop Me

It’s been a long time since I blogged about my business. This is due to the fact that on February 28, 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After all of the tears and shock, I was determined to live life as I would if I did not have cancer. 

I had chemo, 5 biopsies, 3 MRIs and 2 lumpectomies 2017.  They found a second cancer, which required a mastectomy.  3 days ago I had my mastectomy.  

Creating is my passion. I was not going to let cancer take that away from me. I ended up making 100 purses less in 2017 than I did in 2016. But I continued to sew, create and attend events. People told me to take a break. I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to give up what I loved. 

And I am so glad I didn’t.  I met SO many survivors at events. So may strangers are now friends.  And I didn’t stop what I loved. 

Here I am now recovering from my mastectomy. I finally posted 30 Switch Purses on my website. Working on 30 more as I heal. Cancer can take my hair, my eyelashes, my eyebrows and my breasts, but it won’t take my passion and creativity.
