Cheryl’s Adventure - Changing seasons
By Cheryl Copeland

Christmas is coming!  It’s my absolute favorite time of the year!  But first, hold that seasonal thought - I need to share something with you.  Most of you know I’m fighting breast cancer.  But it’s not about the cancer, it’s about change.

Cheryl’s Adventure - LOOK GOOD - FEEL BETTER
By Cheryl Copeland

Children’s words are often charming, especially when spoken directly from the heart.  While some phrases or comments are meant to be nothing but sweet and innocent, we sometimes rule them to be a bit blunt and horribly honest.  Giggles often follow if you find yourself thinking, “Did you just say that out loud?”  Children are built with an honesty chip that allows them to speak without thinking.  It is because of this gift that we often find ourselves laughing at the truth that lies behind the words of such an adorable face!

Look! Up in the sky!  It’s a bird – it’s a plane!  No!  It’s Superman!  You’ve just realized that evil forces were swooping in to attack and destroy everything within your reach!  Then, out of the blue, you see a man dressed in bright blue spandex and a red flying cape with a giant “S” on his chest flying in to save the day!  Yeah, right.

Cheryl’s Adventure - Wasted Worry
By Cheryl Copeland

During the opening faculty meeting at school this year where I am a teacher, my principal gave a brief update on the progress of my battle with Breast Cancer.  I personally was not in attendance to hear what was said, but I was quickly informed by many of my colleagues that he had never known anyone to remain so positive through such an ordeal and he was amazed at how I’m handling this deadly battle with such ease.  

Cheryl’s Adventure - Mirror Mirror on the wall
Mirror, mirror on the wall, how will I look when I'm BALD? 
By Cheryl Copeland

About eight weeks ago when the doctor hit me with the words you've got breast cancer, the first thing I said was, I’m going to Disney World, and not, I’m going to be  bald!
