I really like your blog.
Divine intervention is right! Amazing!
I didn't know that there was an Undy 5000 near me.
If I am doing well next year I will join you in the Undy 5000.
Except I'm a walker not a runner.

Wow, Deb. Thank you so much for sharing this. I could see you there, see you euphoric and moved, see the doggie with the underwear on his leash, and best of all, see you blessed, and blessing those of us who love you here.

Amazing!!! I love loge love your positive attitude...sometimes I feel like we overlook the power of our spirit and mind in this battle! Do you know that I once was so convinced I was pregnant that I missed my period (never did before or after...ever) and had every pregnancy symptom
You could think of.....just saying, everyone has an amazing healing power within as well!

Deb, what a great story! It just proves to me that there is a reason for everything. There is a reason you veered off your path. Something or someone knew that you needed to be there with all the Colon survivors. What an experience!!! :D
