In Honor of my Mom: A Breast Cancer Warrior



Mom and Me

As we enter Breast Cancer Awareness month, I just want to honor my mother, who has fought breast cancer into remission twice in the last thirteen years. I have watched her bravely face the traumatic diagnosis, a radical mastectomy, a stem cell transplant, radiation, chemotherapy, and all the other sickness and fatigue that comes with this horrible disease.

Because I know that cancer can wait in the wings for the rest of her life, I prefer to use the word warrior instead of survivor. It is a battle that she has fought alongside so many other brave, strong women. I hope everyone will support efforts to find new treatments and, quite possibly, a cure.
