About Me Let's see in the last 12 years I have had too many stories, but have managed to keep a positive attitude with the philosophy of “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference”. It all started with an ugly divorce in 2000, followed by breast cancer in 2001. I was surrounded by my children and good family. After surgery and treatment I started on my way to a new life only to suddenly having double vision, slurring my speech to loosing strength in my entire body. After18 months of tiring to diagnose me, I was misdiagnosed with LAS. Good thing they didn’t tell me because it took a month for me to get into the Neurology clinic. I was immediately diagnosed with a treatable condition Myasthenia Gravis. Again more treatment, x-rays that lead to more misdiagnosis that my breast cancer had metastases. After a month of waiting for a PET scan results, the scan came back with no sign of cancer. Following this all was too many deaths in the family with a very tragic and said death of my nephew (suicide in 2007). A wonderful man came into my life in 2006; I swear he was an angle that helped me through the darkness of death. Now at age 58 young and after saying I will never get married again. We did in August 2011. Added to my list of favorite quotes is “Never say Never”. A few of my others are “Wine me up and watch me go”, “Live life like it’s the 2 minute warning”, ”Live well, Laugh often, Love much”, “The problem with Italian food is that 2 or 3 days later you’re hungry again”, and “Laughter Music of the Heart”. I love Ellen, she has brought laughter and hope into our homes when things weren’t looking to good. Ellen’s compassion and generosity for all is exceptional. Gratefully, Debbie Frati-Hepper

Betty,
So sorry to hear of your accident. I am praying for a speedy recovery. One of my favorite lines is "Attitude a little thing that makes a BIG difference" Try to stay positive and take the drugs they really help!
