My memoir book
is now available
ebook! By Susan L.

90 second book trailer video from
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 18 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.

HAVE YOU EVER
MET THIS MAN?
by Dave Burch, printed here with
contact him at:
Have you ever met this man?
He's bent and busted, gray
ugly enough to make your
blood run cold
Some folks say if you go by
he's kinda weird but they
wish he was their friend
His sense of humor sure can
and his feelings about
patriotism are two fisted
Without even thinking, he
holds the door for women
no matter if their arms are
full or if they're just grinnin'
Too many kids will make him
but he loves 'em all no
matter what color
When he's around, you best
respect Old Glory
Because any bad manners is
sure to make you feel sorry
He's got that set of
principles, them ones that are old
they get in his way, 'cause
they won't fold
A few times he calmly reached
for God's hand
when he needed His help to be
a stronger man
He did his time carrying a
fighting a war that was said,
couldn't be won
He's happy around GI's and
lots of others
but the troops are like his
A few folks say he's around
but in my mind, he's my best
Yeah, to city folks, them old
cowboys sure are strange
'cause for them, the only
place for peace is out on the range.
Cowboys have bullshit on the outside of their boots, not in them. They
won't wear their boots into your home. Politicians will never give you
the same respect.

I "Sunny Susan" was invited to write
on the web site of the Arizona Republic
newspaper as they have liked letters I have
written to the editors over the years.
March 26, 2008 was my first Blog.
I stopped writing due to lack of time.
You may go to my Blog at
May need to go to archive for each month on right side
below my photo to open older Blogs.
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.
This web site was 20 years old on April 27, 2017.
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.
