LauraNell.com Author Laura Shows Off the Results of Chemtherapy

One year web anniversaries may not seem like big milestones, but once you start dealing with cancer, you come to appreciate milestones in a different way.

LauraNell.com announced today that it had reached its one year anniversary. LauraNell.com is a blog intended to bring encouragement to readers as much as anything else according the blog's founder KB. "She enjoys photography and she took particular interest in the Pioneer Woman's blog which started with stories and anecdotes from everyday life.

Articles like "Life on Princess Street" discuss the process of going through radiation therapy while appreciating the outpouring of concern and attention that comes from having cancer. Laura tends to laugh at herself and share thoughts such as “What shall I use to cover this head of Baby Monkey Hair today?” Having thoroughly searched the Internet for information on coping with hair loss during chemo-therapy she moved into how to cope emotionally with the changes that cancer therapies bring.

Having co-directed Zambia Medical Mission for 12 previous summer this was her year to stay home and blog. Unfortunately lots of her blog material comes from her enjoyment of gardening, and this turned out to the hottest summer on record for central west Texas and instead of watching her plants thrive she had to watch them burn. There is undoubtedly a blog post on the horizon to herald the coming of fall and the end of an amazingly hot dry summer. She did get to enjoy the gardens of others with a visit to George Washington's Mount Vernon. "George grew some beautiful flowers in the Upper Garden. The sunflowers in his garden were thriving, unlike mine at home that were struggling to survive the constant triple-digit temperatures and drought.”

One year web anniversaries may not seem like big milestones, but once you start dealing with cancer, you come to appreciate milestones in a different way. Thanks for reading her blog, from her loving husband - KB.
