I am Leah and I have Bipolar Disorder. To make life even more interesting, my husband, Dan, has Stage IV Cancer. He was diagnosed at 37 and has  been in ongoing treatment for 4.5 years! We also have a healthy and rambunctious 7 year old. So follow along as we try to manage our life together and strive for love, gratitude, and joy.

Father's Day 2018

Happy Father's Day to my amazing husband,

Dan Herzing


I am a dork and signed Raine and Dan up for a Father-Son Basketball Camp at

Eureka College

without even thinking about the fact that Dan has only one reliable lung, vertigo, and a recent complete shoulder replacement.

It didn't stop him from attending today, doing the best he could, and not even caring that he might have looked a little awkward and funny to all the other dads.

Since his S4 diagnosis in 2014, we have been blessed with

FOUR Father's Days together. Raine will someday know how utterly amazing this is.

For now, he was just happy to have some fun with his dad. No big deal.
