Hey Y’all!

We’re past the half-way point of October and I’ve been debating whether to blog about this or not. Most of you realize that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month … and many of you know that I was diagnosed last year.

Call me superstitious, but I really didn’t want to chime in on the subject. Maybe because I still carry my sword and am fighting my own battle. They say I have to make it 5 years to become a “survivor”.

Well, I’ve made it 15 months since my diagnosis. I survived the surgeries. I survived the chemo (just barely!). I survived the radiation. I survived losing all my hair. And I am surviving the long-term medication that I take to keep the enemy at bay.

So call me what you will. But don’t dare say that I’m not a survivor.

Lest you think I’m a strong woman, I could not, would not have survived these last 15 months without the love, prayers and support of my precious husband, children, sister and dear friends … these and many more I call my prayer warriors. You know who you are.

Ladies, get your yearly mammograms. Please.

Love and hugs to all.

Terry Lee
