DD DD Gore has been my student for the last 3 years.  Those of you who have had classes with her have grown to love her just as I have.  She got word last week that she has stage 3 Lymphoma and will be undergoing some intense chemo therapy treatments for the next 6 months.

I had the privilege of sneaking in to check on her this morning and send her some good energy.

Students of mine don’t just stay students but we become connected at a deeper level.  When we write together and share our stories we share our love, heartaches, sadness, joy, pain.  We connect with a heart connection.

My business is heart centered so I connect not just as a writing coach but as a friend, even as a member of my family.

Let’s all continue to remember DD in your thoughts and prayers.  She would really appreciate it!

  1. A lovely sentiment Tammy. All so very true.

  2. If anyone can pull through this it is our feisty DD. Send her my love and admiration.

  3. You can be assured that we are thinking and praying for DD. Tell her we said hello. Can you post where she is at so we can send her a card or message via Facebook. Thank you.

  4. DD is in Eisenhower Hosp room 369

  5. Being in class with DD for over 2 years I know what a fighter she is and I know she will win this battle. Please tell her I’m keeping her
    seat warm. Thinking lots of good thoughts and praying for her.

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
