"I do a 'Talking Circle' and sometimes I do things to help people that come to me and ask for me to do things for them.
There is this, this little women who came and she was in the 'Circle' with us and after she got through and I had expressed my self about what I was going through. She told me since she was 17 she has been going through this with different operations and she's older than I am. I thought 'wow, so there is a life rather than just, OK you've got a couple of days and it's all over'. So, that begin to encourage me.
Each time I would meet somebody there'd be something in their, in their discusion or their way of talking to me was encouraging so I begin to think 'well, there is a lot of hope for me'."
