Singing is my therapy,
my joy, helping me in life's
most difficult situations.

In 1994, I underwent surgery for thyroid cancer with adjuvant radiotherapy in Olomouc and Martin. I wish to thank all the doctors for their help. My surgeon was Prof. Kothaj and I believe I owe it to his surgical skills that I have been able to keep singing.
In 2003, I had another surgery for breast cancer with adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

In 2010, after seven years of living cancer-free since my treatment for breast cancer and thinking the worst was behind me, I had a recurrence with bone metastases. It's been a year since I started receiving chemotherapy and supportive treatment again. Sometimes I feel like there's nothing but drugs circulating in my veins. The Lord is giving me the strength to carry on through these difficult times.

I thank you, Lord!

In this respect, I wish to thank the staff at the Banska Bystrica Oncology Clinic for their care.

My children are my greatest support. I own them my gratitude for following through with the idea of me recording a CD of Christmas carols. At first I was against it, but eventually I decided to go along with it. It was physically very taxing. Being on the fourth line of chemotherapy, I felt exhausted but happy.

I wish to thank everyone who worked with me on this project, helped me and encouraged me along the way. It was also motivating to realize that maybe this project will not only help me but also others, who found themselves in a similar situation. Now I know that, as part of my fight against cancer, it was the right thing to do. I feel that my health is getting better and I have faith that, with God's help and with the help of the doctors, I will be cured.

Life is a fight
and one should never lose faith and hope even when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds.

I wish everyone sharing a similar fate to find refuge and strength in the midst of their loved ones to fight this difficult battle.
