Dear Carla (sorry I just called you "Ken")

You are certainly on a roll this morning with the positive thoughts!!! 
Please keep it up!!!  It is delightful, uplifting , and a beautiful way 
to start the day :=) THANK YOU !

As I remember, Bernie Siegel is one of Marty's favorite writers of 
uplifting books for cancer patients and care givers.  Guess I'll have to 
make a trip to Barns & Noble for some spiritual reading, capichino, and 
something sweet :=0!  

Carla, you are certainly an angel with a heart filling message and 
beautiful uplifting glow!  It is amazing how many miracles can happen 
when you open yourself with a positive and gentle outlook.  Jason is so 
right...whatever you believe is what you create for yourself.  That is 
both our power and our downfall (if we are negative).  My journey to 
survivorship couldn't have been successful had I not firmly believed I 
would succeed.  Was your PET scan a routeen follow-up?  Please let us 
know how you are and maybe you would be willing to share your story with 
us.  You certainly have a positive spirit that we would all benefit from 
hearing about your journey.

Please keep sharing your spirit with us.  It is a beautiful and bright 
gift.  God Bless You.
