I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 1990 after finding a lump on breast self examination. Surgery and chemotherapy took 6 long months but I made it with the support of my mother, Carole Kesler. In Jan of 1991, in celebration that my treatments were over, my parents vacationed in Mexico. In April of 1991, my mom was diagnosed with metastatic pancreatic cancer and she passed away in June of that year. Without her support, I am sure I would not now be a 19 year survivor. Not a day goes by that I do not remember her beautiful face, her endless caring, and her loving spirit. Keep up the fight and continue to click so that all cancers might be cured in our lifetime.
