I had some awesome co-survivors who through they own circumstances in life gave me hope. My husband was a diabetic paraplegic who was also bipolar and sadly passed from kidney cancer. My daughter was abused by bio mom and her boyfriends. They both live(d) inspiration lives filled with hope and never stopped looking forward. By the time I was diagnosed with stage 1 IDC, I knew what I had to do to survive. Now I’m coming up on 7 yrs cancer free!
