Cured Life Turns 1!

Today is the one year anniversary of the launch of Cured Life.

If you’re new, welcome! My 2016 Year in Review will catch you up.

My main goal in starting this site was to chronicle my cancer stories in an effort to help others who have been, or become, diagnosed by my same disease (peritoneal mesothelioma).

As I had hoped, I have made some wonderful connections. But the Cancer Chronicles were always meant to be an archive of stories, which I feel is complete for the time being.

These days, trauma is getting farther in the rearview mirror (cue happy dance!) – along with fear and uncertainty.

But the curing continues. Always.

So what will Year 2 look like?

More food. More creating. More farming. More health. More wellness. More love. More FUN.

And more defining, sharing, and celebrating what a cured lifestyle entails.

But always with that grain of salttongue-in-cheek attitude.

In the beginning I defined a Cured Life as one rooted in the desire to “cure” yourself of the negative things that hold you back. That came after something incurable destroyed my life, and subsequently led me to figure out a better path. Thanks, cancer. Seriously.

Of course there is no perfect roadmap that will cure what ails and challenges us, just a bunch of small steps that can make it all a bit more pleasant.

I hope you’ll continue to join me as I endlessly aspire to embody my best life.

Cured Life:
Aspiring to live, healthier + happier.
