15 years ago this October 1997 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was one of the most difficult times in my life and one that affected me like no other. It changed me and my life forever. With that said, I have to say that the blessings that came from that trial were some of the greatest I ever received. I am so very thankful that I am still here today, to have lived a full life over the last 15 years, to have seen my two sons grow into fine men and to have had the opportunity to live life with my wonderful husband. I thank God and praise Him for the blessing of each day.
