My sister is a survivor and a champion. She not only survived a bilateral mastectomy, infected implants, and multiple surgeries, but she is now the guardian for two of her grandchildren and a real champion indeed!  She was staying in bed worried that the life she had to give the two sweet girls wasn't enough. She cried because she couldn't reach around to wipe her bottom, so I told her to get over it and wipe from the front!  She got out of bed and those little girls are her life, God works in his own incredible way!

We lost our mother to   breast cancer in 1997. She was my hero by setting the of always being brave   and having a positive attitude in fighting this disease. She never gave up   even though her last 5 years of live were a very difficult battle. She faced   every problem head on. I'm proud to have been raised by this woman. We miss   her so much. I love you Mom!
