My sister was 40 years old when she got breast cancer. She was a strong person, perhaps the strongest I know. She lived for about one year after we found out. Our world would never be the same; she suffered so much. During her last year of life she had many surgeries including brain surgery but it had spread all through her body by the end. She fought hard though. She told me once that everything she went through was worth it if she got just one more day with her family. She left behind not only one brother and three sisters, but a parent, five children, and a grandchild. We all miss her so much and not a day goes by that we don’t think of her. She was truly an inspiration to us all.
If one thing could come of this, I wish it would be for all women to be checked regularly. We need to help spread the word. Please help end this awful disease! Thanks for reading my story.
