Breast Cancer Survivor

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Greg's mother Nancy is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed while Greg was on his mission. The cancer was not caught as quickly as it should have been, and was quite progressed. She underwent chemotherapy and came very close to losing her life. We are so grateful that she did survive the fight. She is a beautiful person, inside and out. She is so very kind and gentle. She is a woman of great faith, and has kept that faith through many trials and hardships. She is an amazing mother to Greg and myself and spectacular grandmother to Palmer. We love her and are so blessed to have her in our lives.

Way to go Greg's Mom. She is truely a fighter! Because it is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we are so busy at work! It's too bad we can't have the awareness in two different months to soften the work load! :)
