In honor of this years think Pink & Smile for a Cure Sweepstakes here is the moving story submitted by last year’s winner, Jennifer Vorhies:
When I was 20 my mother passed away; she was 46 and had breast cancer – in her late thirties they removed her left breast but it came back in her bones. When she was diagnosed again I was in my second year of school so I quit school to come home and take care of her. Which was an honor that she thought I could do it. She only lived three months, it was the best and worst time of my life. We were even closer than before and I grew up fast. Now it has been 20 years since she passed and I’m a mother of three and I try to tell them things about her since they never met her. I know she is looking down from heaven and she is proud of the person I have become because of her!! I miss her so much! Thanks for letting me tell my story.
