A Facebook friend posted this quote yesterday. It is from Carl Jung. "I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to be." Lets all choose to be brave and strong women.

    Oh Nancy.... YOU ARE THE WOMAN OF THE DAY!!! I LOVE this. I truly and absolutely agree with this. We ARE NOT blobs of breast cancer, we have faced the terrifying diagnosis and some pretty tough treatments. We come out the other side much stronger for walking through fire. You just can't help developing some pretty tough calluses for the experience. My thought about the entire thing is you learn you are much tougher than you ever imagined. You can do anything you set your mind to take on. We become Warriors. Thank you again, Nancy for this re-affirming, positive statement. Be positive & strong women! Sharon

    I love positive life affirming sayings. I have a saying written down in my treatment diary that always makes me smile: I am not 62, I am 16 with 46 years experience. I refuse to let my diagnosis drag me down.
