Please help find a cure for cancer.
It was three years ago that I received those horrific words from my doctor, "you have cancer".
I thought, "that can't be true. I'm only 47 years old. I have two young kids that need me. A husband who loves me. He can't raise them alone. I can't die."
So I fought! Four rounds of chemotherapy, three surgeries, a positive attitude and a ton of love and support from my friends, family and community! Today, I'm cancer free. (Of course, early detection and awesome doctors were a key to my happy story.)
I wish everyone's cancer story had a happy ending. Help my wish come true!
