My Story – Uterine (Endometrial) Cancer: What do Gatsby, Miss Piggy, and the Devil have in common?

happy-birthday-62-years-nice Me! We all share the same birthday.

Lucky me. I got to turn 62 today, surrounded by a peach-colored halo reminding me that almost anything—even uterine cancer—can be a blessing in disguise. 

This is the only adult birthday I’ve had within reach of memory that I haven’t minded . . . one bit.

No profound thoughts. Just gratitude to be able to post this message.


 And a nod to some of the “friends” I share the day with.

  1. I’m so glad you don’t mind having this birthday. I don’t mind you having it either. It means all the more time I get to spend with you. Happy, happy birthday. I love you, Mom
