I am honored to have been asked by @thelilynews to write a piece about overcoming trauma (read here). I am crying as I write this caption. It has been a long road over 21 years since my cancer diagnosis at age 21. I am short on words at the moment. This ride. This healing. This community. This love. Thank you to Lisa Field for the visual evidence and for the willingness to ride the waves with me, as this body (and body of work) evolves and grows. Thank you to Marni Goldstein Caputo for being the best friend (and proofreader/editor of this piece and others) for 24 years. You have been by my side from the moment I heard the words, "The tumor is malignant" to now. This piece traces through so many memories. So grateful to be here. Now. Life is good.
