Hi, I'm Amy from the Denver, Colorado area. I'm shy until I get to know you, I am socially challenged, something that I am going to be working hard at overcoming in 2014! I am a 4 year stroke survivor and a 17 year Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor! I have been a member of Sparkpeople since August 31, 2009.

I developed peripheral neuropathy in my lower legs, feet and a little bit in my hands from the chemotherapy I had 16 years ago. I let it get the best of me to the point where it hurt ...
Hi, I'm Amy from the Denver, Colorado area. I'm shy until I get to know you, I am socially challenged, something that I am going to be working hard at overcoming in 2014! I am a 4 year stroke survivor and a 17 year Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor! I have been a member of Sparkpeople since August 31, 2009.

I developed peripheral neuropathy in my lower legs, feet and a little bit in my hands from the chemotherapy I had 16 years ago. I let it get the best of me to the point where it hurt too much to get out of bed. I lived this way for 13 years. I had a small stroke(not a TIA) Feburary 4, 2009 exactly a week after my 40th birthday. I was told to get active and eat a healthy diet or I would be back within the year possibly with a more severe stroke or die. I found Sparkpeople 8 months later and it has changed my life for the better! I am now active and eating healthier than I ever have in my life! I have been on pain management theapy for a year now. I do still despite the pain management therapy have bad days when my pain flares up pretty bad, I force myeslf to get moving anyway!

I love to do yoga as it relaxes me as well as helping to increase my flexibility and helps to reduce my neuropathy pain. I go for walks daily with Shadow my walking buddy. I am very active in volunteering my time and raising funds for the American Cancer Society. My main volunteer work for them is through their Relay For Life campaign I am the 2014 season Online and Facebook Chair for the Webster Lake division in Colorado.
