Hi! I’m Brenda. A 44-year-old explorer and notorious troublemaker. As a former teacher and life-long learner, I’m a firm believer that knowledge is power.  I’ve found traveling and learning through different adventures an excellent way to improve my knowledge base and experiences of different people, places, and cultures. I’m lucky and proud to have many friends all over the world.

I’ve recently been diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. As a healthy, active, non-smoker to say this came as quite a shock is an understatement. This is all new to me and many of my friends and family.

I’m hoping that this blog will help share my fight against cancer for those that are thinking of me, supporting me or perhaps going through a similar situation in their lives.

I believe in karma and the universe giving back what you put out into it. Thank you for your good vibes, prayers, and love. It reminds me that there is still so much good in the world.
