Hobbies Taking care of three Yorkies
About Me I am 3 x cancer survivor -- married to my very caring supportive husband for 33 years. Have been helping him get through a heart attack in July 2010 that afterwards had to retire from the job he loved to at the Fire Department for over 30 years. Then he had both knees totally replaced and is just starting to show signs of maybe we are getting back into our old self and confidence. I love taking care of my family and they come before anyone or anything else in my world -- they are my biggest incentive to fight and stay strong and stay positive everyday!!!! They are my world. I have one son who is 30 and he has been with his girlfriend for two years and they seem really happy together and he has a great job and seems to be the happiest I have seen him in a long time. I have a step daughter that we do not get to see often -- they live in Texas and she has been married to Tom for 16 years and they have three adorable children and yes that makes me a grandma at the age of 54 but that is OK -- they are worth it to me -- love them to pieces and love my whole family more than life itself. I love helping others first and always make sure everyone around me is taken care of first -- that is when I feel the best if I can help others. I feel very blessed to have survived cancer three times in 16 years. Each diagnosis was more aggressive and less chance of survival than the one before -- but Ellen -- I stayed strong -- I stay positive -- I proved my doctor wrong!!!! In a good way!!!! To be honest -- I amaze her!!!! There are a lot of things that happen to ones body after going through chemo and such stong drugs that you continue the rest of your life to deal with things as they come up. That is really hard to handle but when I look at my loved ones that is all that I need to pick me up and know why I am doing all I do to win my fights. You are awesome Ellen -- keep up the great work and all your sharing with so many people that truly need help -- you are an angel on this earth!!!! One of your biggest fans -- well two including my husband!!!!

I would love to win the JCP Gift Card or I should say I need to win the JCP Gift Card. Our son has finally found his sole mate & I think a wedding is in the very near future. We'd love to help in anyway we can with expenses & I would love to buy myself a beautiful dress that would make my son proud & have JCP fix my hair that would not show how thin my hair is due to chemo treatments. This gift card would allow us to help them with a few expenses & buy them things they need for their home & get myself a dress to be proud of & get my hair done for their special day coming up in the near future. We have had so many unplanned situations that have left us in a very tight fixed income with no wiggle room for anything. This would be a dream come true for a special event that is in our near future that at some points in my life did not think I would be here to see & now is in our sights for the near future. It could be our way of thanking our son for being such an awesome child growing up & being so supportive through my 3 bouts of cancer & 2 back surgeries & my husbands heart attacks & knee surgeries. He truly had to grow up fast during his high school years & we would love to add some help to the situation. Not to even begin on the things we need for our home like towels and sheets and maybe a bedspread that fits our bed?? Thank you Ellen for always making us smile everyday -- we love your show and my husband and I watch it together all the time and he thinks you are the just the best!!!! Thank you for all you do for all those in need -- you are truly an angel on this earth -- love you Ellen!!!! Please think of us when considering the winner of the JCP Card. Going through all we have gone through has piled up our debt more than we can handle and has left us needing to put so many things on hold that truly need to be replaced or fixed like the car and some furniture. I know there are others more deserving of this but Ellen we are in deeper debt than you know and it is making our forced early retirements & medical situations tough on us no matter what direction we turn. We stay strong & we stay positive through everything but it is not as easy on my husband because he came from very little material things in his life but had all the love anyone could hope for. So he takes pride in what he has and how well he can keep things up but that has changed over the years & I would love to see that pride swell back up in my husband and see him proud and excited of his accomplishments he has worked so hard to get but right now can not keep them up as well as needed. Thanks for listening to my story & you don't know what this could for do us right now -- so much more than one could ever imagine!!!! Thanks again Ellen -- Love you and your show -- you are the best!!!!
