    "What doesn't kill me will only make me stronger." Through any type of difficult time in my life, I knew, I would grow in knowledge and strength from the experience. I always had the idea that even on my worst days, I would get better. I felt confident I would walk through the fire of treatment and come out the other side, a winnerl I knew why I was given the burden of having breast cancer.... it was because I am a blabbermouth and would yak it up to other women to get mammobrams and do self checks. I run an email information service for my horse community. (Vast majority are women) I told them when I found out I had breast cancer and I encouraged them to get their checks done because mine was found in an early stage. I also wanted to show women, the diagnosis of breast cancer is not a death sentence. I didn't want to keep my disease a secret because I wanted no rumors going around. Even when I was going through chemotherapy, I carried on my life as close to normal as possible. I wanted to shine the light of day on breast cancer and SHOW people what it was like. I received wonderful support and received a lot of positive feedback about yearly checks. I also had several women share they were going through scares of ultrasounds and biopsy's and hope I was able to help them get through it. Only one woman having DCIS and another woman had stage 1 IDC, both successfully treated and back to life again. I never question why, if by divine reason, I was chosen to have breast cancer... I talk too much! Live your life to it's fullest, help and love other people, Take care, Sharon

      Previous to having breast cancer, I was pretty much of a wimp, fearful, timid so I have to say breast cancer was one of the best things that has happened to me. My inner "gladiator" came out and it has served me well. You have to power through...

    I made myself a CD-titanium, girl on fire, lots of inspirational songs like that. And Melissa Etheridge's "I run for life" which is all about beating breast cancer and still running and moving forward . It's emotional but awesome

    I have always liked these two. In a world where you can be anything, why wouldn't you be yourself. The other saying I like is: to know and not do anything is really not to know at all. For this journey: be brave. Be smart. Be in charge. Lean forward. This recognizes we will have those days when we simply don't recognize ourselves or our energy. But leaning forward is essential. To grasp at normal again. had surgery. Had AC Had taxotare Had Herceptin Had radiation Getting port out next week -- 16 mths post diagnosis. Hooray. Sigh. Let it go. The other

    Strength does not come from physical capacity, It comes from an indomitable will We don't know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have

    Know It, understand it, deal with it, move on... Do something you love everyday! If I had a pony I'd ride out on the ocean... We love that Zany Lyle Lovett song...

      I meant the rest of Lyle's stuff - penguins, that's no lady that's my wife, etc. :). Although Wild Women Never Get The Blues might fit!! The pony song fits just fine!
