About Lizzy Smilez

I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in January 2012. On the day of my diagnosis, I made the difficult decision to leave my husband and move my two young daughters and myself to another state to seek treatment. Divorce is difficult, but divorce and chemo and moving at the same time is quite the journey. 

Today, we are all doing well. I am in remission, navigating the world of dating, parenting my daughters, and rebuilding my life. My passions include blogging, hiking, traveling, and healthy living.

Despite facing enormous challenges, I am proud of my survivor status: survivor of an alcoholic husband, survivor of a contentious divorce, and survivor of cancer. I am living proof that life post divorce can be beautiful.
