The Cancer Dancer

by suziebanthony

There are occasions that take my breath away and fill me with a hope and joy for this world.  A week ago I came across an internet video featuring Tiffany Staropoli.  She has stage 4 colon cancer.  This means that a cancer that originated in the colon has spread to another part of her body.  In this case it is the liver.  Although treatable this is one of the most difficult to remove types of cancer.

Tiffany has chosen to remain positive despite the difficulty of her medical journey and dances to relieve stress and to laugh at herself.  She believes that a healthy positive mental outlook will help her beat this cancer or at the very least help her get through this medical journey with her sanity intact.

I applaud her efforts and wish her well.  To view the interview with Tiffany and her husband Rick follow the link here.

We live in deeds, not years: in thoughts, not breaths;

In feelings, not in figures on a dial.

We should count time by heart throbs.  He most lives

Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
