On March 11th, i used to be clinically determined with lymphoma. the adventure that is documented in my manuscript titled assemble Your Tribe. while i used to be first clinically determined, one in every of my medical professionals stated, “Kathy, i do know you’re used to being the mother and caring for every thing, yet now it’s time to collect your tribe and settle for the help.” So, “gather my tribe” is exactly what I did!
