This book is about my many battles with cancer. I have had cancer six times and I am currently on chemo as maintenance for precaution measures. In addition to cancer, I have had other health issues over the years including two complete knee replacements. This book is also about my life and my children and grandchildren and family, but it is mostly to show people there is life after cancer and to never give up. I was born into humble beginnings in a little town called Bluff City, Virginia. I was one of six siblings. I had two brothers and three sisters. I was the next to last. We didn’t have much growing up, but we had each other and a lot of love. I went to school in Narrows, Virginia and graduated in 1964. I met my husband, Roy, in 1967 and we were married a year later after his tour of duty in Vietnam. We had two boys, Randy and Rusty, and three grandchildren. I worked at a local factory for 37 years until my retirement in 2004. I have always loved to write. I have written many poems and stories, mostly for personal use. This is my first book, but I felt I had a story to tell and I hope it will encourage others who are either going through the same battle or who have been through it.
