Shaving Cream Technique

I have several friends battling Breast Cancer right now and with October coming up so many who will be celebrate being a survivor!

Like myself!  I am a 15 year survivor myself!  Every day I am grateful that I am cancer free.  When I got the call from the doctor’s office to come in to discuss the results I knew what that meant.  I still had young children and didn’t want to die.  My husband was out of work and we did not have insurance.  With Faith and Hope we found agencies to help with my treatments!
