Life's Victories

Age 44.
A lump in my breast.

Stage 0 breast cancer.
Emotional tears.
Shock.  Disbelief.

Mastectomy, chemotherapy.
On course to defeat the enemy.

Fast forward ten years.
A lump in my right chest wall.
Stage 4 cancer.

Aggressive treatment.
Gratefully and joyfully
surviving and thriving.

In remission today.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
