I lost my grandmother moom to breast cancer in september of 1994. She was strong throughout the entire 5 year battle. never complaining about how badly she felt. When given the option to have her breasts removed to prevent the cancer from spreading she refused because she thought my grandfather would find her less attractive. I wish she wouldn't have made that choice but whats done is done. She is missed each day and her strength and courage lives on forever in my heart. Also in July of 1998 my first child was born and was named partially after her. She is the tall blond girl in the picture and I pray that she grows to be as self- less and courageous as moom was more and more each day.

this is in memory of Emmaleen Genese Shelor- Campbell aka "Moom".
