#17 A True Fighter

“Like everything in life, it is not what happens to you but how you respond to it that counts.”  Steve BackleyThe Champion in all of Us: 12 Rules for Success

One more post on yesterday's trek to Minneapolis. We were fortunate to meet Robianne Schultz, a thirteen-year breast cancer survivor, and what an impressive woman she is!  She was first diagnosed at the young age of twenty-seven and then again about a year and a half later.  Not only is she going strong but making a difference in the fight against cancer is her passion. She is a lead advocacy volunteer, a committee member for Relay for Life and has been instrumental in increasing cancer research funding at the Federal level.  What a fighter and a champion and I admire her response to what has happened to her.  She can be in my corner for the next twenty-one years.  Bam! Slam!  Take that, *&$# Cancer!

Oh, and by the way, have you written to your representative lately?  Thanks for reading #17 of 7777.
