Hello! My name is Avie Barron. I live in beautiful Southern California with my best friend and amazing hubby, raising our three tiny humans and two fur babies. I love all things Jesus, jiu jitsu and nerdy like Star Wars, Marvel, Hello Kitty and Harry Potter. I was diagnosed with Stage II aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma of the lung on June 1, 2017. I never considered blogging until a good friend suggested it as an outlet since I couldn't train jiu jitsu as often and so I began my blog to share my experience in trying to kill my tumor, "George." My hope, purpose and desire is to encourage others by sharing my journey — the good, the bad, the gross, and the funny...in learning how to lean on God through it all and how to breathe again!
