Eyes Without A Face



The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts.... We cannot change our past...we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes.Charles R. Swindoll

My friend, Peggy (pictured above), has Stage 4 Lymphoma.  When Peggy looked in her mirror and witnessed the effects of her caner treatment she didn't mourn the lose of her beautiful hair, rather, she celebrated the emergence of a perfect canvas for her friend Ed Hose.  Thus resulting in the truly amazing, one of a kind, Halloween costume. 

This is why I love Peggy. 

UPDATE: April 2, 2012  Peggy is now in remission! Yay!  Here are a few more pictures of the joy Peggy brought to others during this emotionally and physically draining time in her life.


The best Christmas ornament! How do we clone Peggy to have on our trees?  Ed?


What do you do when you can't be in New York to watch the ball drop?  Have Peggy walk down the stairs as you count in the New Year with all your BFFs!




UPDATE: 2/20/2014

Peggy is doing well and is in remission.  She is doing well enough to now have her stint removed. 

For her bone biopsy this is what she did:
