Depression. People just don’t get it because they don’t understand it. To think suicide is a result of selfishness makes me want to scream and cry at the same time.

They are my comfort, my loves, my support team, and my best friends.  When I was first diagnosed with cancer, my fourth thought was of my sisters, right behind my two children and my husband.

National Cancer Survivors Day has come and gone.  Our “Cycling to Survive” event was a great success, and I am quite sure that other celebrations around the globe were successful too.
