There is nothing more exhilarating than to be among a group of women that traveled through the same dark tunnel you did, and came out better on the other side. Today, for going through that harrowing journey, many of us were treated like queens at the Susan G. Komen Race for The Cure.
This morning, us breast cancer survivors of Connecticut paraded through Bushnell Park of Hartford and were greeted with enthusiastic applause. I felt like a rock star. Mom was there, cheering me on and braved the heat and humidity to walk with me.
At the Surivivor's Breakfast, I even won a $50,00 gift certificate. This is something I will do every year as a way of showing my gratitude for all the doctors, family and friends that got me through my battle with breast cancer. It was truly a priviledge to be standing along side fellow survivors that felt the same way I did--stronger and more grateful for life. We did it!!!
