I have a ‘still’ story

It is with great humility and gratitude that I am able to post this ‘still’ story with permission by Tango Warrior, three time cancer survivor. 

In the still of the morning light I still plant each foot down with a 'Thank' and 'You’.

My breath still reaches into each new day and your faces still appear to me as the smiles I met.

Thanking you still for being the beautiful spirits you are.

Still, everyday is a chance to get it right while stilling my chaotic life right now.

Am finally divorced and more freely, still me.

Still waiting to hear from PDAP regarding my claim re: flooded basement.

Still hope for having my own home mine for the winter.

Doctoring still with follow ups, next in October and December.

My oncologist still evasive, saying only, see you in 3 months, still living the 'no news is good news' and still believing the curb holds all I have kicked there. Finding joy, a continuous and welcomed process still.

I am in a financial stillness with whom my bank and debtors and I are still not liking, still the bare minimums met to buy me more still more time.

Keeping still my graceful strength in God Almighty for in all this stillness He resides in me and will always still be beside me.

Looking forward still to a future date with you four dynamic women! I am still okay. "Surprise, Surprise, Surprise" (still the best catchphrase of Gomer Pyle) Laughing still.

Still Spiral,

Tango Warrior, three time cancer survivor

Warriors Under the SKY: Summer 2014 Karma Issue

Dionne and Graham Warner:
The Warrior and her Wingman

 Dear Friends,

I am very proud to publish SKY Magazine and share it with our readers. Each quarter, SKY celebrates the amazing people who live in vision and who inspire others to live in vision too. Like the changing skies of Saskatchewan, the colour of the SKY word mark changes in each issue to reflect the central theme and message. 

This issue, the colour of the SKY is lavender, which represents all cancers. 

Dionne Warner, eight-time cancer survivor, graces the cover of the Summer SKY “Karma Issue”, so named because Dionne is the essence of ‘doing good things’ in her dedication to bringing hope to those fighting cancer. I am pleased to share the story of Dionne and her husband and ‘Wingman’ Graham. I am also honoured to share the stories of three amazing women, Nicki Bayfield-Ash, Leah Barnard and Jodean Howie in ‘Warriors Under the SKY. 

Jodean: Tango Warrior
Nicki: The Patient Nurse 
Leah:  Miracle Mother 

If you haven’t read it yet, please take the time. These stories are written to help raise hope among cancer survivors and their families.  

The Summer SKY digital version can be seen at and  

There are limited hard copies left, so please contact us if interested. 

Thank you so much for your ongoing support. I look forward to seeing you soon.
