'My cancer is gone'

BY MARY MITCHELL

To my dear readers:

Words cannot adequately express my appreciation for your prayers, messages of encouragement, flowers and cards.

As expected, I faced my fight against breast cancer with the unswerving love and devotion of my family and friends.

But I also had the support of strangers, many of whom shared comforting expressions of faith and hope.

Breast cancer battle is just beginning

More than 500 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer every day.

On March 13, I was one of them.

It was as if someone had strapped me into the cab of a roller coaster.

Each new test jerked me up a monstrous incline; each new piece of information flung me into an abyss.

And still I consider myself blessed.
