Lost and Found…

Upon mom’s passing we have been fortunate to be contacted by some of her family from Belgium.  Christian Gaule, first cousin to mom, reached out to Sabine and I and sending us pictures of mom.  I’d like to keep adding them to this blog; we love the pictures.  Christian has also confirmed mom’s nickname that she inherited at 20 months of age,  Poupette, which is French for butterfly.

Milestone(s).

Got my chemotherapy power port removed today. True to my mom’s wish she was alive to see me through my treatment and double mastectomy for breast cancer before passing away from her own fight with ovarian cancer 3 weeks ago. My mom, my light and strength who taught me how to fight and be strong. I love and miss you every day mom. 🕊 — at Saint Francis Cancer Center.
