“I remember your brave face through all the pain, the day you told us and I tried to remain sane. “I have breast cancer.” Yet you didn’t shed a single tear you stayed intact. Through out the radiation, chemo, and pill, You still smiled and had such a strong will.
Your attitude is what carried you on.”
