Laughing and Living after Cancer!
My name is Gina Cook and I am addicted to life and laughter. I was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast Cancer at the age of 31. I am now 39 and so grateful for life and laughing . Being diagnosed at age 31 and having two girls to raise was unthinkable . How was i going to fight my grim diagnosis? Was I going to live? What were the statistics? How were my girls going to take this? A six year old and a nine month old?
Well I decided to put my combat boots on and my faith in place. I was not going to die but live and enjoy life and raise my beautiful girls. I began my Chemo Treatments, radiation, multiple surgeries. My beautiful long hair was gone and so was my breast. The one thing that I did not lose was my will to live, and my gift to keep singing and writing.
Every day is a gift and I love it! Take those things in your life and people that cause you strife and let them go. Breathe in your oxygen, exercise, eat healthy and realize you have a purpose . Live and Laugh and above all ,Love!!!
