I am a ten yr. survivor, my two younger sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer and I took care of them, until it was time to leave me and go on to a better place, I almost did not survivor their loss. Two yrs. later I was diagnosed with stage 3, my husband and 3 survivors have been my support group, we only have this moment and embrace it well, I do the 5 mile walk in Denver every year, and my friends and husband walk with me. Both of my sisters had chemo and drugs, I chose to do nothing other then travel and enjoy everyday that I have. Please feel free to email me. My name is Jo Ann. Bless all of you, and my thoughts are with you every day.
