Across TEN Aprils
Ten years ago today, I had the right upper lobe of my lung removed three days after having radiation to a brain met, all due to melanoma, diagnosed at Stage IIIb seven years prior.
Today, I share these photos and my story, hoping that they provide some small joy, some spark of hope, a message of beauty and love, to those that are hurting. You are stronger than you think. And for all the pain and suffering - there is beauty ~ still.
Much love to each of you. les
