My sister, Mary, was diagnosed with breast cancer and treated. Not long afterward, her daughter, Cathy, was diagnosed. Cathy had several years of treatment and participated in several experimental trials, hoping to help others with her experience. She impressed us all with her courage and sweetness. She finally passed on and is greatly missed. Mary, however, has survived and is a Peace Corps Volunteer in Africa helping with an AIDS project. It's easy to see where Cathy got her courage and loving ways.

I am currently caring for a professor in her 80's who has just entered Hospice for terminal breast cancer care. She is amazing. Brave, wise and loving. It's a privilege to spend time with her.

I honor these women and all the others who have shared their lives with us as they experience this great adventure.
