My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 non-hodgkins lymphoma cancer 2 weeks before Christmas of 2005. They said it was pretty bad and they were not sure what was going to happen. The dr just kept saying just to do the chemo and see where it got her. My mom taught for about five years after having a device surgically incerted in her chest to administer the chemo they told her that she was in remission and still today,even though we worry its going to return, is so far I the clear. My mother is a tough women over coming so many obsticals in her life especially over the last 13 years and believe that my mother is an inspiration after finding out she had cancer she changed and for the better my mom is an amazing women and I am great fil she's here and so amazed in her faith in GOD through all of this she is a different perso then she use to be! Yet she know better that life is to short to worry about the little things and this is the imprint that she leaves upon her husband, 3 daughters and 2 but soon to be five grandchildren!!
