Cancer Stinks-Oldie But Goodie-Bugaboo Stamps

I have a story to tell you!  It's a story about a young woman in her early thirties who discovered she had a lump in her breast.  She had a mammogram which led to a biopsy which led to a diagnosis of cancer.  That was a very scary time in her life and in the lives of her family.  That young woman is my sister!  A woman who as a child completely freaked out at the sight of a needle coming toward her.  The school nurse would call me out of my class room to come and calm her down when they gave her shots at school.  This beautiful young woman had to endure surgeries, chemo therapy, radiation and countless needles all without her sissy to calm her down.  She lived in Hawaii and I lived in Oregon and we both had small children.   It was a hard time for her but she fought just as hard and kicked cancers butt!  It's been twelve years and she's a survivor!  She's my hero!!!

It's in honor of my sister and Breast Cancer Awareness month that I bring you this weeks Oldie But Goodie from Bugaboo Stamps.  Her motto while she was going through this time in her life was that cancer could not take her smile.  I hope this puts a smile on her face!
