Was doing great until the last few years and then everything changed. Shortness of breath, insomnia, lots of pain, two types of cancer and weakness in my legs.

I am 55. I have been in a relationship with a wonderful man for 19 almost 20 years (no plans of marriage). I have two grown sons 31 and 30 that are my life. My older sister gave me her "bad" kidney as the doctors called it (it had dropped when she gave birth to her first son). I live life and I am a volunteer with ARORA.
