Geraldine O. Lloyd

I am Geraldine Lloyd - artist, writer, and cancer survivor. 

 

My columns are written for The Frederick News Post, my hometown newspaper in Frederick, Maryland.  

 

In 1993 I was diagnosed with a squaemous cell carcinoma of the right true vocal chord.  After complications from a brutal regimen of radiation, in 1995 I underwent a laryngectomy at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md.  Seven years later (2004) I was diagnosed with Stage III lung cancer.  After radiation, chemotherapy and surgery, i am in my sixth year of remission. 

 

Both of my parents died from cancer.  My columns are written to offer hope, information, and inspiration.
