I'm a cancer survivor. My story is a bit complicated.
I was inspired by Suzanne Somers who stood up for her beliefs about how best to treat her cancer. I admire her strength, because so many people opposed her decision. She is alive today, and many with her same diagnosis are not.
It was the same case with me.
That said, being diagnosed with cancer broke down my marriage, and now I am a struggling single mom, trying to hold everything together. Do I appreciate life? Yes. It's still not easy.
I'm doing the best I can, trying to get over several traumatic events. Trying to help others survive toxic treatments, and move onto healthier lifestyles.
