November Blog 2017:

Hello friends. This month we have another guest blog to share with you. Traci Fine is one of the most inspirational people I have had the pleasure of meeting. As you read her story, you will see a glimpse into the battles she has went through and what helped her to win. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed listening to her and having her as a very close friend.

Traci’s story:

I am a mom of kids. Jason, 46 is my husband, our oldest son Cameron is 30 and married to Heather. He owns his own home, his own car, works two jobs plus Ubers part-time and is the most wonderfully gregarious man I have ever met. Our youngest is Dylan; he is 20. Dylan works two jobs, rents a room from his brother and sister-in-law and is very focused, driven and is an award-winning costume designer and creator. Our fur babies are Daisy, a 13-year-old beagle and Dane, a 7-year-old boxer. They both keep us entertained and loving life everyday. I am a hard core Harley rider; my husband is not. I love blasting music and singing loudly; my husband does not. I am a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of gal; my husband is a planner. What we have REALLY works.

I was raised in an amazing, loving home by hard working parents who still believe your word and handshake is the way to do business, make friends and shut down your enemies. To live a life fulfilled with hard work and giving to others while keeping it positive all the time was instilled at a very early age. My earliest memory of my spirit was when I was four. I told my mom I wanted to be a princess and help people. She retorted back that I would grow up to have, be and inspire many people. I just needed to make up my mind and put some action behind it. Forty some years later, I look back and I truly believe that those few simple words from my mother was where it all began.

In February of 2017, I was diagnosed with Stage Four, diffused, large B-cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The words would test everything I was, am or care to be as a human. I was blessed with getting cancer. BLESSED! Some say I am insane for seeing it that way. A large part of the reason I killed cancer is because of my outlook, which was accompanied by drastic lifestyle changes, amazing medicine and divine intervention.

In the process of my cancer treatment, we saw a huge need to help those who have nothing and no one during their treatments. Traci’s Angels was birthed in the midst of my brutal cancer treatments as a way to give back. It has provided me the opportunity to not feel sorry for myself and to give in a way that I would never expect repayment. IT IS MY PURPOSE, MY PASSION.

I started writing in Jr. High and always knew I would write to INSPIRE others. It’s my sole purpose for being on Earth!! In 2018 I will be releasing my first self-published book, “Losing is not an Option.” It is a full, on account portrayal of kicking cancer’s ass and how I was able to affect my outcome along with traditional medicine and holistic modalities combined. It will also outline how Traci’s Angels Go Bags came to fruition.

I have many projects that I am moving through the creative process; “Losing is not an Option” will be the first in a series of inspirational and motivational life-inspired books.

I cannot wait to share them with you in the upcoming year!!

Thank you Traci for sharing your story with us. Like I said at the beginning, you are such an inspiration. I have wanted to help “a cause” for many years and have been unable to find one I was comfortable with. You have helped me to find that “cause” and I am grateful as well as excited to help Traci’s Angels.

Join us in December when we talk about how to know when to start a new paragraph.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Tina
