BEING A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR HAS CHANGED MY OUTLOOK ON LIFE
Breast cancer made me appreciate day-to-day life more. It taught me to enjoy the present because that's all I've got.
THE MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF VOLUNTEERING
Helping to lessen the fear and loneliness a newly diagnosed woman feels. Being a beacon of hope: "I got through this, and you will too."
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO A NEWLY DIAGNOSED SURVIVOR?
Chin up! This is very scary but you are stronger than you know. Take good care of yourself, ask for what you need, and know that you are a survivor.
