Neat story tonight...a woman who was from small town Indiana, and had watched her mother go through BC when she was a girl and mom was 29. She spent the last few years as a chairperson raising $ for Relay for Life and then found her own BC I think at age 25. She did chemo and had a bilateral mast and total hysterectomy. Her 135 year old house is falling apart and they get a new house. Looks like a fun show tonight! The woman's hair looks like mine did in St Louis, takes me back a few years!

I watched the show. Loved it, so heartwarming and brought back so many memories even after 21 years since my diagnosis!  How thankful I am that I am here today to be able to watch TV with my husband, kids and grandchildren.  When I was dx'd in 1985, my oldest daughter was 13 and my youngest was 8.  Thinking at that time that I would never see them graduate let alone give me grandbabies was my biggest worry.  I am now a grandma of 4 and loving so much spending time with those adorable little ones.
Each and everyone of you here are on my mind as always.  Praying that someday we will all see that cure that we all are waiting for.
Lori,  I remember your haircut!  You looked so cute with that short,curly hair. St Louis is yet another memory that I will NEVER forget.  I will never forget all of the hugs that was going around those few days.  Meeting my breast cancer sisters was such a highlight of my life!!!!!
Do I sound alittle melancholy this evening?  (Guess the show did it to me.) 
Hugs to all (Newbies and Oldbies)
