Fighting Stage 4 Leiomyosarcoma one day at a time

Hello Everyone,

Thank You for visiting, I initially started this blog to keep family and close friends updated on our journey to Houston Texas, to visit with Dr. Burzynski, a world renowned doctor, who specializes in cancer.

A year and a half ago, MB was diagnosed with stage 4 Uterine Leiomyosarcoma and given no more than a year to live.

MB is only 50, she hasn't seen any of her kids get married or have babies. She still has a thirst for life, three kids and a Husband who absolutely adores her. My sister is 23 and youngest brother only 17. We still need our Mama Bear. If you are, or were, blessed enough to have an MB like mine, who has always loved you unconditionally and supported you, you will know how we feel. Nothing can replace a mother's love. Nothing.

Because MB's cancer is very aggressive, we had no time to waste. The very same day the doctor told us to prepare for hospice, MB and I said, "Fu*k That!", Hospice is a dirty word at our house.We started applying to the Burzynski Clinic as soon as we got home from the doctors appointmet, after 3 days of collecting medical records and sending faxes we were finally accepted.We never took time to think, we just acted. No more than a week and half after we were told to go home and prepare for death, we were on a plane headed to Houston TX in search of life and a second chance. We've left California and our family during Thanksgiving.

Even though the treatment is crazy expensive and we are away from home during the holidays, this is still the best decision we ever made. Sometimes you have to bet big to win big!

We aren't the Kardashians, we are just the Vargas' and we are going through the "realest" hardest battle of our lives...This is our story....If you'd like to start reading from the very beginning click on November, on the lower right hand side of the page and the very first post is the "Adventure Begins"

Taliboo Update

Everyone wants to know what happened to Taliboo. Well Taliboo and I had a fight the night of my birthday dinner. I may have been drunk, I may have said things I shouldn't have said, but the point is that after we had that fight I haven't heard from him. Egh, you win some you lose some. Men are like busses, a new one comes around every fifteen minutes.

I've been dating in San Jose but most of the guys I meet are blah to say the least. Where did the real men go? I've been talking to this guy, he's a software engineer and he keeps asking me to go on hikes or hang out at his place and we haven't even been on a second date. I'm sorry but this screams Cheap-O and Creep-O. New rule, you can't ask a girl to hang out at your apartment until you've been on AT LEAST 3 dates minimum. Then there's the DJ. The DJ likes to invite me to watch him play on Monday nights. Strrike 1, he invites me to "the studio" to watch him produce, Strike 2, and he has a GF, Strike 3! What part of me screams groupie whore!?!? Then there's the 23 year old, hes good for stress relief and thats about it.

Yazzy Fresh sent my pic to a guy she thought I might hit it off with, he replied and was very interested in going on a date, only problem was he had a girlfriend. I'm so over men. I give up. I'm perfectly happy seeing a 23 year old  once a week and living my life free of the drama and stress that comes from dealing with an actual man. At the end of the day guy's are only good for one thing and when your done with that, its time to send them packing. Think what you will, I don't care, I prefer to be honest than live a lie with a man I can barely stand. I have enough friends and family to go out with and talk to. I'm Good!

Don't get me wrong, if a REAL MAN came my way, I would definitely try to make it work. But those have been few and far between. I know they exist, it's just been a while since I've met one.


  1. I may be anonymous-but you know who this is and Im smh. SMH.

  2. Just running across this blog~
    .. How did you and the 23 year old start hooking up (I assume that's what youre saying here) considering you wouldn't go beyond date one or 'hang out' with these other guys- guys who at least passed the 1st line of defense with the age barrier?

  3. Daddy M,

    One word....Chemistry! and the 23 yr old and I did date for a while, so he def passed my first lines of defense.
