    Loss (Lost loved one): I lost my sister-in-law, Pam to breast cancer. Pam's loss was so difficult, we had been walking together on this journey for 7 years when she lost her battle .The things that I do for cancer causes is in memory of her. In my heart, she still walks beside me.

    Celebration (going on with life): For me, helping others & raising awareness is something I try to pass on. I'm involved with Relay for Life & raising funds to win the war against cancer is very important to me.

    Radiation (External radiation ): The radiation in my jaw in 1987 caused little damage.The radiation in 2003 led to a very hard to treat case of trismus which led to another surgery to release the jaw. I have recently started a newer form of physical therapy that is very time consuming, but is working very well to maintain my jaw mobility.
