My husband Ken Eazell, was first diagnosed with Mantel Cell Lymphoma in February 2011. His cancer was found during a preventive colonoscopy. His mother died of Colon Cancer in 1996. Knowing that Colon cancer is heredity and being the age 46 he knew he should start getting checked.

Katie Marie, you deserve to live sweet child. You deserve to make it to double digits. You deserve a first dance, first job. You deserve to fill out college applications, have a child of your own, with no fear of something in your head trying to kill you, slowly. We all deserve that chance.

If you watched any cartoons in the 1990’s you are probably familiar with the animated series “Hey Arnold!” and the fictional character Eugene. Those who know me may accurately compare some of our characteristics. Like Eugene, I am an accident-prone nerd who tries to find the optimistic side of my general misfortunes.
We’re only a day away from the BIG feast…Thanksgiving! These pumpkin cheesecake bars are simple to make but do require a few hours of cooling and refrigerating. Totally worth it when you give them a taste. They may not be the traditional “pumpkin pie” but they do have the taste of Fall and Thanksgiving.
Easy Breakfast Omelet
I love to eat healthy, especially after a good work out. I try to really make my breakfast healthy and hearty. Eggs are a perfect way to get a lot of your daily protein in. I use 1/3-cup egg whites (equivalent to two large egg whites) and 1 whole large egg.
