"I AM FINDING MYSELF FARTHER AND FARTHER OUT INTO THE FINAL FRONTIER."

This week, Wendy Chioji checked into the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, for the first round of a new trial of treatment that doctors hope will extend her battle against a rare, incurable form of cancer called thymic carcinoma. It is Wendy's fourth trial since her 2013 diagnosis (and she's also a breast cancer survivor).

Wendy continues to share updates about her journey on her Growing Bolder blog Live Fearlessly and in one of latest messages, she said:
"I gave up trying to be in control of everything many, many years ago. Therefore, I am not feeling super stressed about this. I am aggressive in learning about and seeking out options for myself, as I like this life very much and want to maintain quality of life for many more adventures. But I won’t worry about what I can’t control. Worry is bad energy that I won’t tolerate in myself and I won’t allow others to bring to me. The last thing I need is an energy suck. Really, it’s the last thing I or anyone else ever needs."
Doctors are hoping infusions of a new combination of drugs, given over several rounds, will help stop the growth of cancerous tumors and essentially work as a trojan horse to attack the bad cells and leave the healthy ones intact. (Wendy explains much more about the plan in this post.)

Despite this new part of the journey, Wendy continues Surviving & Thriving. And she does it with a smile on her face and hope in her heart.

When Larry Pino couldn’t find a senior living facility that he thought was right for his mom, he built his own! That has led to a reinvention of senior living, from the ground up, and the launch of Tuscan Gardens.
