    I would like to nominate my mother, she is a remarkable woman. She has raised 4 children and continues to raise 3 grandchildren. Back in 2003 her doctor told her that she had a lump in her left breast, when she told us kids about it, ofcourse we were afraid for her, but she tried to tell us that it was probably nothing to worry about. The doctor scheduled her for a biopsy, and we all were waiting until after it was done to go into her room to see her. We ask her, well, mom, is everything ok? What did the doctor tell you? She looked at us and told us that it was cancer, so he removed my breast and some of my lympnodes. I remember being so sad and feeling really bad for her, while wondering at the same time…Did he get it all…Has it spread? But while my mom was lying there, she looked at us and said…awww it will be ok, don’t worry about me, I’ll just get a falsie.. LOL! She is a very brave woman, if she was sad or depressed, she never let us know it. My mom is cancer free and I thank GOD above that I still have her in my life!! Thanks for letting me share my story.

  2. I have been a mother for three days. Three days ago, I delivered a gorgeous baby boy and every time I see him smile I know that he was meant to be mine.
    Two and a half years ago at the age of 26, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 triple-negative breast cancer. Two and a half years ago, my life completely changed directions. I thought at 27 my husband and I would start having a family. That was the plan, but plans change.
    Over the 2 years I underwent treatment, I shared every step of my journey through a blog for The Detroit News ( I openly shared my emotional ups and downs. It was an amazing experience sharing in such a public forum. The blog was truly a blessing for me and while I was helping others, readers helped me every step of the way.
    So here I am, sitting with my son. I never knew if I would get here. I never knew if I would get my life back. But the truth is I know that my life is better for overcoming cancer and I will tell my son how he is my gift of life.

  3. I would like to nominate a former Marine wife and friend. Her name is Stacey Basse and she is currently going through the battle.On March 16th she was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer, by March 30th she was already in surgery not having not one but both breast's removed. Since that day through everything, chemo,hair falling out, you name it she has gone through it..But she is amazing! Always positive with a smile on her face. She has her loving husband who she was by his side through a whole Marine career and one lucky son! She is one special lady!

  4. My dear friend Tracy Rausch, is so deserving of this recognition & award. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 & underwent treatment, all by herself with no one by her side. She did not tell anyone as she traveled up north to receive treatment by some of the top surgeons in America. “Why would she do that,?” you might ask.
    She is a very private person due to the fact that she is a physician & cared more about returning to work to provide care for her patients. She’s not one of those hoity-toity physicians who practices medicine for the money. She actually cares for the patient over financial income. As a top notch Internal Medicine doctor, she is truly the greatest physician I have ever met & known in my life. I know Tracy, because I was her medical assistant years ago. Thanks to her encouragement, I went on to complete nursing school.
    Tracy doesn’t know that I hold her in such high regard. She amazes me with her continual love of others, giving without taking & genuine compassion. Tracy is now in her 40’s…uh, um….don’t tell her I said so. She has had twins in the past two years & is a single mother to them.
    Being fortunate to be a stay-at-home mother myself, to a 22 month old daughter, I realize her great commitment to her babies as well as her work. I admire & look up to her with all that she has overcome & accomplished. She is my life long friend & my hero!

  5. I would like to nominate my friend Sherry. She is an amazing woman that overcome so much. Almost one year after her brother in law passed away from cancer, Sherry was diagnosed with breast cancer. To make matters worse (as if being diagnosed isn't horrible enough), she had just given birth to her precious little girl Emery. INstead of healing and taking time to bond with her little girl and her five year old son, she had to undergo a double masectomy and go through chemotherapy. As a mother, I know how exhausting being a new mother can be and I cannot even imagine how hard all of this was for her. She is an amazing woman, mother and friend and deserves this so much! S
