WANDA’S STORY

I had been having symptoms for 7-8 years, but we had no insurance. It finally got so bad I went to the women’s clinic. The doctor took blood and called the next day. He said something was wrong and that there was some internal bleeding. He set up an appointment for me to see a gastroenterologist. I was scheduled for a colonoscopy and heard “you have cancer” as soon as I got back into the room….in front of my husband and 8 year old daughter. I was still loopy from the medicine. The news sobered me up real quick.

WANDA’S ADVICE

The best advice I ever got was from a fellow survivor. She said “take it one day at a time, and if you can’t do that, take it one hour at a time, and if you can’t do that, take it one minute at a time, and if you need to, take it one second at a time.”

WHAT ONE MILLION STRONG MEETS TO WANDA

Hope. Continuing progress in finding a cure.
