My name is Mary. I am a cancer survivor. I lost a leg to bone cancer a few years ago. I am now cancer free. I am a retired nurse. I worked as a medical missions nurse with various groups for 35 years. My interests include clean water, living standards in 3rd world countries, recycling, animal care. I use chemical free products by making my own cleaning products, and I support groups such as World Vision, Doctors without boarders, and many others. I create fabric art in the form of afghans, and other items which are use by childrens outreach programs. I am interested and support local womans and childrens centers and there programs. I love to learn. My favorite hobby is reading. I live simply in a semi-rural area. I look forward to getting to know more about this site and sharing with other members. I can not post a picture. My computer is old and doesn't upload or download.
