Every year my friends and family tell me I should be recognized for being a cancer survivor. So this year, I gave in.

I have been free of cervical cancer since 2001. It was  the scariest and most painful two years of my life but I made it through with the help of my family and friends! Without them, I am sure my outcome would have been different. They gave me the strength to fight it.
