I'm a triple negative breast cancer survivor.
Twist on Cancer: I have a host of happy mantras since cancer, like "You get bitter or you get better." I have a new perspective of looking for the bright side in everything now, even our COVID lockdowns and the current challenges in my teaching career. I feel like everything that happens now makes me think, "Well, it's not cancer," and so I get up and face the day.
