I'm so blessed to be a survivor, that I volunteer as a driver, Road to Recovery for the American Cancer Society. I drive cancer patients to their appointments and treatments. This service helps their family from having to take off from work. Giving back gives me strength to help myself and to help others. Cancer will notwin our fight!
