My name is Janine and I am a thirty-year-old relocated New Yorker currently in Tucson, AZ. I have two bachelors’ degrees: one in elementary education and one in nursing. For the past two years, I have been employed as a registered nurse on a Neurology unit at one of the local hospitals. I absolutely love my job and find the medical field pretty fascinating.
I met my husband Milo at the local community college when I was completing my nursing prerequisites. He’s a IT technician there. Friends turned romantic, we were married on 10/10/10. Since, we have been attempting to start a family without success.
In May 2011, I started feeling sick all the time. After several doctors visits and tests, I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the liver on 8/8/11. This blog is my attempt to convey what it is like to be 30-years-old, diagnosed with a cancer someone twice your age should have and hopefully survive.
