My 60th birthday had not originally been planned to be celebrated at the Cancer Center. Yom Kippur had not originally been planned as Day #1 of my radiation treatment.
These dates will always be symbolic to me, as I begin a new chapter in my life --- from a Holocaust Survivor to a Breast Cancer Survivor. I view things differently now, and try not to "sweat the small stuff". I cherish my children, grandchildren and friends who make my life complete.
