STEPHANIE’S STORY

In May of 2009, just two months after my mom was diagnosed with rectal cancer, I was given the same diagnosis. The local doctors told me to get ready to die-leaving three children ages 4, 9 and 12. My husband said,  “Uanacceptable words!” & found hope in St. Louis. It was difficult, emotionally & physically painful, but moments of hilarity, clarity, and firm resolve to fight helped me to endure. The chances of this horrible disease returning are good, but knowing I want to be around to laugh with my children & husband make me think, “Yeah, I’ll work at it!” Pray, meditate, visualize & whatever else you need to do to just survive is what you do. Peace to all cancer warriors.

STEPHANIE’S ADVICE

Pray, meditate, visualize a life without this horrible disease, & scream! Yes, allow yourself all the anger you want-you deserve the sounds of anger. It is this anger that grounds you & prepares you to do battle. Then find the peace you will need to also do battle. It is the peace that gets you through the day-to-day tediousness of cancer & also allows you the bliss in those little victories.

WHAT DOES ONE MILLION STRONG MEAN TO STEPHANIE

A glimpse at others who are fighting. The opportunity to light the torch of hope & pass it on to others. A feeling of “I’m not alone”.
