Survivor - Breast Cancer & Melanoma
Twist on Cancer: I was diagnosed with breast cancer two months after my husband passed away suddenly. Fourteen years earlier, I had melanoma in 2000. The first diagnosis was full of fear and about me. The second diagnosis was much more serious, but I was not afraid in the same way. The journey has taught me how to put life and its challenges into perspective. I was strengthened by my Faith, shown the power of Hope through many "signs" pointing me in the right direction and that Love is patient and kind. We all have burdens to bear, but I have learned more patience through this experience. I strive to be a fountain, not a drain. Working with Marty, she listened and picked up on every detail. She is a light that shined on me to help me tell my story. I am honored and full of gratitude to be a part of the GM Design Center Brushes with Cancer!
