My story is one many of you can identify with – an uplifting look at a life that I am determined to live well, despite all the obstacles I have been dealt. At the heart of the story is the idea of LIVING with cancer. It took eight years to correctly diagnose my rare disease, Carcinoid/ Neuroendocrine Tumors. Then, they said I would die in just a few more years. That was 19 years ago, and here I am! How have I faired? Very well. Read the book to find out how I have lived a happy life, even with cancer.

Would you help to spread the positive word by telling your friends, by gifting the book, and by posting a review for other readers on the www.amazon.com  page? We know how valuable a positive recommendation can be.

Have you taken a tour of the White House, in-person or on-line? Have you checked on
legislative issues that are of interest to you as they work their way through the
House of Representatives or the Senate? Are you interested in various congressional
committees and what they are working with now? Have you read a copy of the
Congressional Record? Would you like to write to the President, your representative
or your senators on-line?  

You won't be able to figure out where I stand .... on most issues (but not all) I
am pretty "moderate" or middle of the road.  I have organizations and issues from
the left and from the right below.
 I have tried to provide links to BOTH sides of
several current issues, and links to political news sites.
  There are links to 700
"American Media Columnist"; a section of links to support our military;
and a section on conservation of land, water and wildlife. 
 PLEASE scroll
down
for a good view.  Thank you!

Since 1996 --- when I first located others with Carcinoid --- I have answered every email sent to me, although some replies were delayed longer than I liked. I am NO longer able to reply to all e-mails due to the volume and other things going on in my life (all good).  I do love hearing from others, but an unable to reply to all individually.  I shall not forget my many Carcinoid friends and of course shall reply to you … as time permits.  This web site was 17 years old on April 27, 2014, and my plan is to keep it updated for many years to come.

Since my husband "retired" I am away from my computer for days, and sometimes, weeks at a time.  Yes, there is wireless internet and we have tried that a number of places.  But, if I deal with email when we are away from home then it is not a "restful vacation" for me.

PLEASE use the SEARCH capability at the top my pages.  You may search for a word, a phrase, a drug, a treatment, a book title or anything you can think of. You may search this site only, or search the complete World Wide Web.

(CCF), Tuesday through Thursday  10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time at  1-888-722-3132 (free) or 1-914-693-1001.   “The information and support line” is staffed by medical professionals.   Mondays and Fridays are research days, if you call then and do not reach a person do leave a clear message.  The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation’s (CCF) superb web site is at http://www.carcinoid.org
