Ribbon of Courage Breast Cancer

Ribbon of Courage Breast Cancer card for several friends who have recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer.  I had Breast Cancer 14 years ago.  Stage Two.  No Insurance.  Still raising small children.  Husband out of work.  90 year old Mother in Law living with us.  I know the fears, the surgeries, the chemo and other treatments.  I was blessed that an organization in Dallas, TX accepted me into their program.  The Bridge Breast Network helped me during a very difficult time by providing me treatment until I was cancer free.  I never knew such an organization existed!  Thank Goodness there are other resources beside insurance.

For several years my family and I would walk in the Susan G. Komen races.  Not only was that a wonderful thing for my family but it truly made me feel blessed to be a survivor of this horrible disease.
