“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
I was recently in the Breast Center at Shawnee Mission Medical Center and was told you had been diagnosed with breast cancer. I am so sorry to hear that news. Since then, I have been reading your blog, and I have learned so much about you! Gloria, you are such a peaceful woman! A picture is worth a thousand words. You seem to speak through your art and that is a true gift. I am so sorry you have to share the terrible experience of breast cancer. When you photographed me a few years ago for the faces of breast cancer calendar it did make a difference. So many women now know breast cancer can happen to anyone, at any time, at any age. It hurts to see through all the research and advancements, there is still no cure. My hope is a cure will be found in the near future. I hope you are following the doctor’s order and getting everything you need. Treatments can be much easier with family and friends there to support you. It looks like you have tons of people that care. That will help you get through the tougher days that may lie ahead. I have been stopped by so many people that have recognized my face from Shawnee Mission Medical Center wall of survivors. Each year I have gotten copies of the calendar and give them to the women in my family. I have also given them to newly diagnosed women though a group called the Young Survivor Coalition. Your work has really made a difference. T.T.
