Cheryl - Thriver profile

In addition to ‘Cancer heros’ (women who have had their cancer return), I’m adding a new category called ‘Thriver profiles’. I plan to post pictures and words of inspiration from women who are living their life with meaning and purpose, after a diagnosis of cancer.

My first post in this category is from Cheryl.

Length of time since diagnosis: This June will be 10 years. Diagnosed June,2000
Type of cancer: Invasive Ductal Carcinoma tubular tumor
Treatment: Lumpectomy and 6 weeks of radiation therapy every weekday

Cheryl's advice for others:

"Appreciate every day. Life is worth living to the fullest and seize the moment to enjoy it. Give back and don't sweat the small things."

Here are a few articles I found online about Cheryl. (Isn’t Google great?)

The battle goes on
