The definition of “Survivor”
To remain alive, to carry on despite hardships or trauma, one who lives through affliction and a person who continues to function in spite of opposition.
Wow…that is a perfect description of what I have seen from these amazing people affected by this disease, sounds like these are the people we should be looking up too. At dinner one night Tara reminded me that we only have two ways to live, she said “we can live our lives as negative and miserable people because I have cancer or we can have a positive impact on everyone we meet”…she said I choose to be positive.
I love her for that...so bring on the pink ribbons, walking miles for a cure, fundraisers with friends and the entire month of October. This is how we celebrate “Survivors” like Tara; we will never stop raising the awareness to prevent others from having to go through this…
