Fun stuff!

I thought we could use another fun little survey for those interested. This is a way for us to get to know eachother better as well as introduce new faces. If you don't like this survey or post, just ignore it. No need to start another fight please :)  

1. State your name, where you live, if you are dealing with cancer (what stage) or if you are a caretaker, or just looking for answers and friendships :)
2. If we were to walk into your closet, how would we describe your style?
3. What would be the 3 books and/or movies you would recommend to us?
4. Say something nice about the peron before you that answered this survey.
5. Describe yourself in one word that starts with an "s"

1. Deandra, Boulder CO. Stage 3C ovarian cancer
2. classic-chic with a little edge
3. It's not about the hair (book) The Red Tent (book) Amoros Perros (movie in subtitles)
4. That would be me - I would say I have a constant need to inspire, care and help people.

Just an aside since everyone will be reading these, Michelle (Stillfighting) has put up some wonderfully informative stuff on her journal and from the lack of comments I don't think many have read them.  You all have got to play the cancer game.  I really felt like I was killing those little suckers.  LOL  Thanks for the nice comments too.

Gwen: Temple, Texas recurrence stage 3 low grade or borderline ovca

When I was teaching, suits and professional look. Now, jeans and shirts.

Books: use to read 3 and 4 a month. I have trouble keeping my mind involved. I read a few pages at a time. Ninety Minutes in Heaven is very special.

Movies: don't really have a favorite. Music, I like it all but rap or "country/country". The Messiah my very favorite.

I enjoyed reading these.
