In the year 2012 I was told that our own Dr. Mary Francis had been diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a very big shock considering that at a young age a person like Mary should be inflicted with such a monster disease. I met Mary about 4 years ago and I found her to be a very strong positive and matter of fact lady who has such an impressive personality. I didn’t know that she was also very brave and a fighter. She fought the disease and its side effects and very soon bounced back to her normal life. One incident that comes to my mind is that in between two chemotherapy sessions she even took a flight to Paris for an important meeting. This shows the character and the dedication of a person.
In 2013 I ended up being diagnosed for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. The first thought that came to my mind was to emulate the example of my friend Mary and fight the disease. Mary was my biggest supporter and philosopher sending me messages almost every day for 6 months till I recovered.
We should not call each other cancer survivors, instead we are fighters of the disease.
