My mother walked down the aisle at my wedding a year after her breast cancer surgery and she danced at my reception. She went on to travel extensively with my father to many places---Hawaii, Colorado, and Arizona to name a few. She was there for the birth of both of my daughters. My mom was living her life and living it well.
When my mother died in March of this year, it was important to all of us that people know she wasn't overtaken by the enemy that is cancer. She had already stood in the face of that evil disease and knocked it out.
Her story is inspiring because she SURVIVED and it is a constant reminder to take care of yourself and be strong. So, if you haven't already done so, schedule a mammogram and stay healthy...today!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
