My Reason Why
Cancer has many faces, but to look at my wife, Laura, the thought that she is a cancer survivor would never cross your mind. Yet on February 7, 2008, she joined the ranks of breast cancer survivors. She never dreamed that she would join this club, but now that she was a member she knew that she had some sort of role to play.
From the moment of her diagnosis, I saw a woman determined to come out a winner. What I didn't expect was her commitment to being a role model for young survivors. She regularly encourages her family and friends to do regular self-breast exams, and to get regular mammograms. She tells them all that it was a regular mammogram that saved her life, and that a regular mammogram will save theirs.
She has also turned me, her husband, into an advocate in the fight against breast cancer. I am proud to share her story and her message. I am privileged to always wear something pink to honor her fight. I am honored to walk by her side during the annual Race for the Cure. I am always moved to tears when I see her cross the survivors finish line.
She is now TWELVE YEARS CANCER FREE with more on the horizon!
