On this day set aside for expressing gratitude, I give thanks for...
The researchers who made my survival possible with investigational treatments in the early 1990s.
The physicians, nurses and allied health professionals who have cared for and about me through the acute illnesses and now the chronic aftereffects, as shared in Thanksgiving 2010
My good luck that put me in the right place at the right time.
My loving friends and family who have shared the ups and downs of my life.
My editors, literary agent and illustrator who have nurtured my voice to help others.
My health insurance.
The big and little daily miracles that amaze me more and more the older I get, such as the colorburst of Autumn leaves outside the window behind my computer screen.
And I am grateful to share my life with my husband, Ted.
