Spirit is my sixth sense

Some people say animals can smell cancer

By Kay Kerbyson

September is ovarian cancer awareness month, and, as a survivor, it always reminds me that life is definitely a journey.
Most of us forget to value what we find most precious, and many just get lost in the day to day humdrum of the 24 hour cycle.
Sometimes it just takes a good day to re-find our spirit. But other times it takes a miracle.
It had been a tough couple of years. I often joked that when our container of possessions came over to the states from England in January 2001, a giant mirror must have broken on the ship, because it definitely felt like we were getting a lot of bad luck.
After we arrived, we struggled for four years to start a family. If you haven’t been through infertility, I can only explain it as having to re-mourn a tremendous loss, month after month after month.
But then in 2004, against all the odds, we brought beautiful baby twins into the world. It seemed like things were looking up.
But whilst parenthood is supposed to bring joy and contentment into your life, and it did, for two inexperienced baby people, it was one of the hardest years ever.
But a year passed, life was getting easier, sleep deprivation was definitely getting less, and I finally thought we were getting back on our feet. But life often has other things in store.
