She’s a Warrior-Sept. 2012

My Sister

Inspired to succeed, that could be the license plate of my sister’s car. Except it would be too long….

She has had cancer for 10 years. Breast cancer that spread. There were a few years of remission in there, but not enough. Fifty years of remission would be enough, I think.

She has always been healthy and active and loved her job as a P.E. teacher. She even taught her children where the “healthy” parking places are in a store lot.  Yes, you guessed it : they are the ones farthest away from the store so one must put forth some physical exertion to enter the store.  I like and love and admire my sister.

After you read it, please go to and watch the sweet video her kids made. She is a single mom now and a VERY young and beautiful grandmother.
