Hugs with 98 Year Old Grandma

My 98 year old Grandma in assisted living hadn’t had a hug in over a year! Wait until you hear some of the conversations and special moments we all shared with my Grandma! It’s truly incredible and we are so grateful for the science that made this all happen! We hadn’t been inside with my mom without masks in over a year. Our recent trip to Ohio in this incredible Outdoorsy RV Van brought so much love and joy along with the most amazing conversations. #brighterdaysahead. CLICK HERE TO WATCH.

5 Year Cancerversary Brings New Questions

Are you counting down the days until New Year’s Eve? 2020 has been a difficult year for so many of us. I often feel reflective in December. I use this time to reflect on the past year and plan for the new one. For me, this year, it’s my most important year since I was diagnosed.  For me, this year will be crucial.  This year is my 5 year mark from diagnosis.  There’s so much that comes with that but especially the questions surrounding one of the medicines I’m on.  I’m on an aromatase inhibitor, which is like insurance.  It’s supposed to help make sure my cancer doesn’t come back.  Traditionally, doctors prescribed this medicine, for my kind of cancer and treatment for 10 years.  But as is always the case with science and medicine, there are always advancements.  

Ballet Above Lincoln Center!

One of the great loves of my life is Ballet. 
One of my biggest dreams came true! To not only produce a Ballet Performance, but to bring dance back to life, in person was a glorious undertaking. To produce at a time, for an audience who needed to be in the presence of live dance and for dancers who needed to dance, has changed me. It’s now a calling to produce more and to help dancers.  
On a recent Sunday, on a rooftop overlooking Lincoln Center, dancers spoke to the turmoil of the moment, with falls to the floor, deep contractions and imploring arms. It was emotional and beautiful. 
The Dancers of N.Y.C.B., a new organization developed to support members of The New York City Ballet during the pandemic, came together for a benefit performance at the Empire Hotel featuring choreography by former and current members.

Blended #TutuTuesday

Even my blended family of exes is joining me this year to raise awareness and money for breast cancer.   While we weren’t in a good place during my cancer journey, what matters now, after living together for over 5 months during the Pandemic, my ex-husband and his wife are now a part of the team.
