Toothless Lion
As the week progresses I find my laughter louder, my smile broader, and my fatigue lessened. I do feel good and love that I have my normal life right now. The medical industry has made such strides with chemotherapy and cancer treatment and I am so very thankful. I remember a time when if a person was diagnosed with cancer, he or she would disappear for awhile during treatment and likely you wouldn't see him again. Or if you did see him, he was a shadow of his former self. So much has changed. We live with cancer these days. We Live Strong as survivors.

I just heard that a woman I know received the "all clear" after treatment. What a joy to hear she is cancer free. Everyone needs inspiration. This doesn't just inspire me in my battle, it should inspire everyone! She has looked at the face of cancer and said, "Ha! Not me!" It takes strength, a daily commitment, and a world of support around her. I had no doubt she could do it and I feel such joy for her.

What I have learned is that with early detection cancer is like a toothless lion. It looks scary as hell, but it won't devour me.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
