Hi! I’m Amanda Rubeck.  I am a wife, mother to two amazing daughters, gardener, runner, hobby artist, and most recently I’ve added ovarian cancer survivor to this list.  This is my journey through trials, joy, reflection, and awareness.  It’s my heart on a page!

My world was turned upside down upon diagnosis like I would assume everyone’s is.  I never thought the word cancer would be uttered in my direction.  I mean it couldn’t happen to me, right?!  Our hardest battle was supposed to be finding a babysitter for date nights, not picking out an oncologist and developing a treatment plan.  Life sure has a funny way of throwing one hell of a curve ball.  It’s been a journey to say the least.

Cancer taught me more about just who I am than likely anything else ever has in my life.  It’s made me truly live, laugh, cry, and sometimes all of those at once!
