I am hoping to find some friends, someone who understands!

I have two grown children and three grandchildren. I love to laugh, listen to music, hang out with friends and family, travel, dance, hike, and take long walks on the beach.

I am a mental health professional and love having the opportunity to make a difference in peoples lives. It is also fair to say I value good communication!

I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer which resulted in me getting a permanent colostomy in 2001, and have spent the last ten years holding my breath and waiting for the other shoe to drop. I have been cancer free for over five years.

My favorite quote is "life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take your breath away." Now that I am finally allowing myself to exhale, I am hoping to have many more of those moments!
