At 24 years of age I was diagnosed with cancer in my neck. I had surgery and
radiation and have remained cured.
Seventeen years ago I was diagnosed with non-invasive breast cancer and had a lumpectomy and remained in remission until a year and a half ago when I was diagnosed with an invasive cancer in the same breast. I again had radiation and am in remission feeling well and enjoying life once again.
I am 78 years and have lived a full and normal life for 54 years. I feel my positive attitude and faith have sustained me throughout my life.
