This is my sister, the survivor. She's always been a survivor. She survived being a breech baby in the 1950's. She survived other adversity between then and now. And she is a one year survivor of breast cancer.
A year ago, I walked this walk with her and our youngest sister. Our survivor was undergoing radiation therapy at the time, and could only do the short version of the walk. Today she walked brisk and strong, the entire 5K. I'm proud of my sis, and of every survivor and fighter against this nasty disease.
Every form of detection is a good one. Awareness and support has made it common for those who have their condition detected early to be long-term survivors. To everyone touched by this condition: be alert to it. Be on top of it. And fight it with every tool at your disposal. Take good care of you.
Because you have that worth I blogged about this morning... something that makes you a special gift to the world.
