Blessings….sometimes in disguise.

I wanted to just take a moment to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. Many people take a holiday like the one tomorrow to look at what they are thankful for in the past year. I do this daily. This is one of the disguised “blessings” that this disease has given me.

I reflect on the opportunities that cancer has brought me; the chance to give back through our fundraising, the chance to potentially help others through this blog, the chance to receive a writing credit in a to be published book.  Most importantly a chance to see how truly good people can be. For that I am forever thankful. I can only hope that in this horrible world that often times focuses solely on the bad, that more people can see and really feel the good as I have. Obviously I hope that this happens for others through better circumstances.

I am thankful for another year. One that was a bit trying at times but one that we have gotten through, a little but stronger. May you all have a blessed day with the ones that you love.


Happy Thanksgiving. XO

    Hi April,
    This is Steffanie Apostle. You probably don’t remember me but we cheer-leaded together. I think it was your last year or second to last year when me Jenna Bragg and Jamie Hamlin joined. Do you have an email address i could have. I want to send you an email. When i found out about your diagnosis which was just recently it made me want to write you something and send it to you. I know we were not close or even really friends lol but I admired you and want to send you a little message.
