For the PaperCrafter's Corner (I)NSD challenge: OUR PEEPS, I chose to scrapbook about my second cancer journey (2012 to present) and a couple of the ways that I give back since my first diagnosis in 2010.

journaling, top right:
My son Andrew and his fiancee Jamie had a vacation different than expected in July 2012. We had two days together before my surgery on July 3rd. After taking me home on the 4th, they took my car and went to northern Maine for a few days. The photos with them were taken at Two Lights/The Lobster Shack on July 10th before dropping them off at the airport and driving myself home.
I made greeting cards at every treatment to give away to others there, too. I continue to send cards to the oncology social worker to hand out.
The Spa Ladies. I took an enlargement of this image with me for every chemo treatment. I called these days my Spa Days. These Spa Ladies represented my friends and their good wishes who were with me in spirit each time.
Dr. Roger Inhorn--my oncologist
