Hooray for Strength

I did it!! I was able to stand up in front of 2 classes and tell them about my journey with breast cancer. I didn't even shed a tear. I came close with a few of their questions, but made it through. What a great experience to be able to share about the challenges God has given me, and to know that I made it through. I hope that the kids were able to get something out of my story. They were awesome, very attentive, respectful, and had great questions. Something I would definitely do again... and may get that chance!!!

Telling the story

Over the last 30 minutes or so I have been looking over my blog gathering dates and info from the last year. A friend of mine from high school has asked me to speak to his health class. I will be headed out this afternoon to Illinois to speak to 8th graders tomorrow about my battle with breast cancer. I'm looking forward to this new experience. It will be the first time I stand up and in front of anyone and tell my story out loud (other than friends/family). They are young, but I don't think its ever to early to know about the effects cancer can have on a person and everyone surrounding them. Wish me luck you will all be a part of my story!
