National Cancer Survivors Day is today!

Today is National Cancer Survivors Day, and I’m reminded today of how fortunate I am to have some special people in my life who have kicked some cancer ass: my mom; my boyfriend’s father Tim; my cousin Robbie; my friend Teresa; my dear friend’s mother Natalia; all of my wonderful blogging buddies and forum friends. And I’m sure there are more people I’ll remember as the day goes on!

Watching all of you inspired me in part to go through with my own prophylactic mastectomy. I am amazed at how many cancer patients turned their own painful struggles into stories of hope, courage, and success. You guys rock!
