Diagnosed with Lymphoma on her birthday in 1999 and after surgery and grueling chemotherapy, which almost killed her, the surgeon told her she’d never be able to speak above a faint whisper because they had to remove the left nerve to her vocal cord. They also removed half of her left lung, part of her right lung, the lining around her heart, her Thymus gland and disconnected half of her diaphragm.  She has been cancer-free since 2000 and can speak again despite the grim diagnosis.

NEW RULE; the Big Idea/ Strategy to help with this new world we live in:

Favorite Quote:

You can judge the size of the woman by the size of the obstacle it takes to stop her..  and… “Your Legacy… You can’t take it with you… so make it worth leaving behind” – Aurea McGarry original

What do you do to stay motivated or the secret for your motivation: 

“My secret is no secret … it is my Faith in God and my undying positive attitude and faith that I am here for a reason and I will live this life fully until the end. Things ALWAYS do get better tomorrow even if tomorrow takes a few years to come.”

I encourage people to take time for themselves each and every
day. One of the ways to relax is to read a good book. What is your Favorite Book:

“ I love to learn from real life and I love self-help books because I always want to grow daily. I love anything by John Maxwell, Tony Robbins, Joel Osteen, Mary Kay Ash, Zig Ziglar, and the greatest one of all: The Bible.”


Golden Nuggets:

  • Everybody has a story … how do you handle it?  We don’t live in Disneyland all the time
  • It’s all attitude – how we handle things
  • Bad things happen to good people all the time
  • Have faith … all things come together for good
  • You have to cry and grieve… then bounce back
  • There are always those who have it worse than you
  • One black eye – is one black eye too many
  • Don’t isolate yourself when going through tough times – don’t go through it alone … reach out … call someone … there are people who care … no matter how bad the pain is, someone else has been through it… You will come out the other side whole and you will be a support for someone else. Think:  Noah’s Ark – two by two.
  • Look for a group, a forum, a meet-up,   a non- profit –  some sort of support for what you might be going through. Today you can google – where is a safe house; google a specific type of cancer and what can be done …what does this type of cancer mean … treatment options, etc.
  • What we do is an example for our children
  • Never give up and keep believing in your Miracle
