Welcome friends. As you can see from the title of my blog, I was blessed to be put on this earth with an identical twin sister. This is a personal account of my unique life experience as a twin. Double the trouble and double the fun. Hope you enjoy the journey.

My First "Relay for Life" Walk to Fight cancer
Friday, June 24, I participated in my first "Relay for Life" walk. My neighbor and friend Tom and I, put a team together to help raise money for the Amerian cancer Society. We called our team, "The Foxgate cancer Fight Club" after our street name. Our team consisted of family, friends and neighbors who all hope and believe there will be a cure for cancer in our life time.
I was diagnosed with non-small-cell lung carcinoma which is a less aggressive type of lung cancer. I was diagnosed in February 2004.
Tom was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme tumor, an aggressive form type of brain cancer. My friend was diagnosed in August 2004, just six months after me.
Tom and I have supported eachother through the ups and downs of the cancer journey. Putting a relay team together to fight this disease brought us even closer. We both know that every day is gift from God and hope to continue to have long and happy lives.
