Back again after a break. I unfortunately got Cancer (Mucoepidermoid Carcinoma) in my face (salivary gland) and took a long break recovering from treatment. I am here to sing and have fun and record as much as I can for my family. My Cancer is back for the 3rd time and I am soon embarking on a surgery that will end my singing and leave my face permanently disfigured. I have been singing since I was a toddler and sang my first solo in front of my whole school at the age of 5. Music has been my life and losing this is going to be more than hard. I have a few days left, so I am here to sing my heart out! Thank you sincerely for the visit to my songs and comments. Every day is a new blessing and I thank you for being part of it.
***Update*** - My Cancer surgery is complete. I had a modified facial dissection and a radical neck dissection. My surgeon removed both Cancerous tumors, and 31 lymph nodes. I am happy to report that all 31 lymph nodes were benign, but unfortunately they did discover a new Cancer deep within my neck that was unexpected. I am waiting right now for the Tumor Board to give input on my next treatment steps, which will likely include chemo and more radiation. The GOOD news here is that I have retained partial use of the right side of my face (which may improve) and singing is still a possibility (after a lot of healing). I am NOT giving up on it. I have use of my eye (which was unexpected, and I am talking and eating a little better everyday). Thank you to all of you that sent prayers, well wishes and kind words and thoughts. I am a bit down at the prospect of fighting a new Cancer, but I am also a fighter and I WILL pick up the pieces and fight on for my family and friends. THANK YOU, SS family.
