Biggest Take-away(s) from your cancer experience
I can do anything, as long as I set my mind to it. Adapt and overcome became my new motto.

I know it’s hard but it does make you stronger as long don’t live like the victim, don’t
let cancer be your excuse. Push yourself and people will be amazed you ever fought that
battle.
