I am starting this thread to honor those who. have died of breast cancer. On this day I want to honor my father who died of breast cancer in 2006

He taught me how to be tough. He was tough enough to serve in the Navy and Army. He was tough enough to earn the bronze star in Vietnam. He was tough enough to raise 6 children. He was tough enough to become a certified professional ski instructor at age 65. He was tough enough to fight his cancer despite multiple health problems. He was tough enough to die with great grace and love.

Now I will use this toughness he has taught. me to live with grace and joy with my stage IV dx.
