My girlfriend Cherri has been an inspiration to me. She has a contagious smile and disposition and is always there for you. When she was diagnosed with cancer, I was there for her. Her determination to not let this disease get the best of her was remarkable. She is a teacher and told her class what to expect in the coming months after surgery. I never saw her depressed or feeling sorry for herself. When she had to wear a wig, it was reddish-purple! She is now cancer free and everyday I think about her trail and know what a fighter she really is!
