Turning Cancer Diagnosis Into Early Retirement

“Live your dream now,” Stacey Roberts Ohr’s oncologist told her. So shortly after surgery and treatment for advanced stage ovarian cancer, she and her husband, coque iphone 7 plus epaisse Andy etui pour iphone xs max xs en relief vintage asiatique de lest chinois style japonais Altman Ohr both in their early 50s quit their jobs in the San Francisco Bay area and began early retirement in Mexico.

The doctor was thrilled. She told Roberts disney characters x4705 coque iphone 7 plus iphone 8 plus 1coques8plusiphone6702 Ohr that no one had ever followed her advice before.

The couple relocated to coque disney samsung a10 2019 the Mexican Pacific Coast town of Zihuatanejo four months ago. These days, they spend their time exploring their adopted country, learning Spanish and relaxing on a beach or in a coffee shop. The likelihood of recurrence is never far from Roberts coque porte carte iphone 6 cuir Ohr’s mind, but she says, “I just try not to dwell on it every day, and living abroad is a great diversion.”

A bedroom window in an apartment they rented for five weeks leaks badly every coque iphone 7 gtr time it rains, and the landlord is not inclined to fix it.

Some 21 years ago, after treatment for breast cancer coque suicide squad iphone 7 I cut back from a five day workweek to four days. Then, after dealing with a recurrence six years coque marbre rose iphone 7 ago, I ripped up my lifelong roots and moved from St. Louis to San Francisco to be near my family. Following my surgeon’s advice, I am aiming to hit 90 as I balance coque clapet samsung a8 part time freelance work with a great deal of play.

None of that measures up to Roberts Ohr’s bold decision, which I learned about when her husband an editor at coque grise iphone 7 plus a paper I write for announced he and his wife were retiring and moving to Mexico. My admiration for them grows stronger as coque iphone 7 homme sport time goes by. That’s the point. Time always goes by, and more quickly than we realize.

Roberts Ohr’s story, I think, has something to teach all of us. “Don’t let fear stop you,” she says. “Be happy.” Not a bad way to live life.

A Dream Comes True

Roberts Ohr was diagnosed in May 2015. At the time, she was executive director of a nonprofit. She underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy and endured 18 weeks of chemotherapy. After that, she decided it didn’t make sense to continue to work in a high stress job and perhaps face a recurrence before first living life owl blue wallpaper l0231 coque iphone 7 plus iphone 8 plus 1coques8plusiphone1688 to the fullest.

“For us, that meant moving abroad,” she says. “My oncologist’s frank words were the wake up call we needed.”

Retiring to Mexico (or somewhere else with sun, sand and beachside cantinas) has been the plan since the couple married almost 20 years ago. In their early years together, they served in the Peace Corps in Jamaica. And for years, they’ve spent vacations in Zihuatanejo, where Roberts Ohr’s mother lives six months a year.

In a recent post on her blog, “Believe It Ohr Not: A Moving Journal,” Roberts coque iphone 7 senegal Ohr wrote, “We are having an coque iphone 6 fille silicone lastage34011 absolute blast. Most mornings we wake up and the day is ours. deadpool marilyn monroe o3162 coque iphone 7 plus iphone 8 plus 1coques8plusiphone4202 We like to start each day with coffee out of the house. We sit on beautiful colonial squares, we bask in the sunshinewe read. We pinch ourselves and ask, ‘Did we really make this happen’”

They did, but only after spending a lot of time spent crafting a budget. Neither is yet eligible for coque iphone 7 mandala pas cher Social Security and, since they’re not yet 59 , it’s too soon hawkeye z0919 iphone 6 6s coque goldufoa8674 to withdraw any money from their 401(k)s without penalties. So they had to be creative.

Early Retirement Requires Money Management

Here’s how: They rented out their home in Oakland for some extra income. Roberts Ohr picks up freelance consultant jobs and occasionally writes grant proposals. Two days a week, Altman Ohr works as a copy editor for the paper where he once served as managing editor. Their rental income and freelance work cover daily living expenses.

Also, not long after moving to Zihuatanejo, the couple accepted a short term housesitting job for six weeks. The house came with two dogs, and though they’ve never had pets, the pair quickly learned to adapt and ended up being great pals with their canine charges.

Since then, on their travels to Patzcuaro, Morelia, Guanajuato and other cities, they’ve sought out inexpensive lodging and pinched pennies, with one exception. In the tiny town of Santa Cruz, where Roberts Ohr met indigenous women making beautiful hand embroidered blouses and skirts, she splurged on two pieces of clothing perfect for the climate.

Still, day to day frugality and encouragement from their financial adviser keeps monetary fears at bay most of the time.

Wealth of another kind is readily coque bob l eponge iphone 6 available. Everywhere they travel in Mexico, the couple is impressed with the warmth and hospitality of the people they meet. They savor the art, the architecture and the history. They attend music festivals and enjoy sampling local coque a clapet samsung a8 cuisine.

Is this the ideal life or what

Even a Dream Life Brings a Few Ordeals

It took a while for the couple to get acclimated to the heat and humidity. A bedroom window in an apartment they rented for five weeks leaks badly every time it rains, and the landlord is not inclined to fix it. The refrigerator leaks water onto the shelves. And the bathrooms sometimes smell of sewage. are hard to find. Sometimes, she also misses having lunch or cocktails with old friends, taking walks around coque iphone 4 drapeau Oakland and “listening to the top of the hour news on the radio.”

Still, the couple agrees that making the move to son goku super saiyan god blue z3566 iphone 11 pro max coque goldufoa14674 Mexico was a terrific decision for them.

“We feel free,” Roberts Ohr wrote in her blog. “We feel deliriously in love. All of these beautiful colonial cities have turned us back into hand holders plus the pavement is so uneven, I’m doomed to trip if I’m not holding onto Andy tightly.”

Though Roberts Ohr’s cancer is in remission, her health must be monitored. She found an English speaking oncologist in Morelia, and schedules an appointment every three months. At her first visit, she was impressed when the doctor gave her his email address and phone number and asked to “friend” her on Facebook…
