    Today is my twin sister's one year anniversary of finding out she had cancer. I found out I have cancer last month. We are 36 and we rock...

    Of all the things that are "twin things" -- I wish this wasn't one! I just wanted to let everyone know my sister was amazing and positive and got through a rare form of ovarian cancer beautifully. This is just the way I plan to beat this breast cancer thing that's hanging out inside of me. Two years ago I worked for the ACS and started the first breast cancer walk in my community. At the time I only knew one person impact by the disease... it was an inlaw, not a relative. My how times change. Let's KICK IT TOGETHER WHAT-NEXTERS!!

    Oh, and we woke up to a beautiful 6 inches of snow and I was out there rocking those sleds with my 8 and 10 year old. Life rocks --- we gotta live it!

      A positive attitude is a prime weapon in battling cancer -- and it is evident that you are "armed" well!!! It is not a pleasant journey but with the support of family, friends and WhatNexters -- you will find the strength to "kick it" -- put it all behind you -- and get on with your life. I wish you the best!

      Hello, Roar -
      Sounds as though you have the most important survival tools in place already - a winning, positive attitude and wonderful support around you. The snow sounds like an added bonus - especially for us fighting Southern belles! Hang tough and know there are "whatnexters" like me supporting you with prayers, good thoughts, and cyber-ears, should you need to vent or just reach out!
      Best to you in your fight,
