So Happy To Still Be Here

(Rancho Cucamonga, CA)
Hi My name is Mary, I retired in 2016 after working for 35 years in the healthcare field As a registered nurse and healthcare administrator. Retirement for me was an adjustment because I had to find my new normal and after about about two years it finally clicked in.
The only hiccup I’ve ever had in my working career was in 2006 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. After multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and weeks of radiation, I am happy to say I’m still here and blessed.
Now my days consist of gardening, reading, playing pickleball, traveling grandkids, my doggy, shopping, watching movies and crafts crafts crafts.
I started writing a book before I retired on exercise, health and wellness. I share my professional and personal journey with breast cancer recovery and working as a personal fitness trainer to help others.
The of my book is Work That Body Now! and is available on Amazon in paperback and e-book. Thanks to Wendy’s e-book on how to write a book in 30 days I was able to accomplish one of my bucket list goals and I am over the moon. Please visit my website at www.Work Thay Body NOW!.com. looking forward to reading all of your stories.
