I’m a double survivor by God’s Grace.

By Cori Colbert

In 2000', I was diagnosed with a 20 centimeter sarcoma in my right thigh. I went through 6 months of high dose chemotherapy, 8 rounds of radiation and major surgery to remove the mass. I had to learn to walk again and I did.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and elected to have a bilateral mastectomy. It was a difficult recovery but I'm still here. I'm blessed and I pray every night for a cancer cure for every kind so all my brothers and sisters who are fighting now or did in the past can rest easier. I've spoken to many survivors and families of cancer patients who are struggling and it is my calling to give help, advice and support to everyone who has been touched by this epidemic disease. We all just need to keep the faith that we will overcome and beat the monster back. Cures will happen and we need to take each others hand and fight for life,
