Lung Cancer

Big surgery this week ❤️‍🩹 I miss you, Guys and Gals! 🫶 Hope to dance along with you again soon 💃🪑 [Video]

Short version here 👉 I apologize for the pause in new dances over the last few months. I’ve been diagnosed with Stage 1a Nonsmokers lung cancer (NSCLC adenocarcinoma). The great news is that it was caught very early and surgery is likely curative! However, my lobectomy surgery on March 21 will leave me unable to use my upper body for a month or two. ❤️💃 BUT – I DO have one more dance on its way soon!! 😘 In the mean time, I hope you enjoy the library of dances I’ve created for you over the last two years. 🎶❤️🎵I sure would appreciate your support!
