"In 2014 my word was "struggle." Learning at 34 that you have a death sentence after being 3 years in remission is a pretty debilitating blow. And when Death is breathing down your neck, life becomes such struggle. And it's still really hard. And there are good days and bad ones. Wins and losses. But know what my phrase is for 2015? 'Joie de vivre'! Living with a terminal diagnosis remains tricky. But I have struggled and grieved and yet I'm still here a year later and so - let's party!"
