Suzanne Gatewood, Breast Cancer Survivor

A Celebration of Life and Hope

“It may sound funny, but having cancer has been like a blessing in disguise. It made me start living my life to the fullest and enjoying the simple things. I’ve traveled to beautiful, new places and experienced more in the past seven years than I have in my whole life combined.

I’ve been through the peaks and the valleys, and I’ve come to understand that this is just a new life for me. Even though I have Stage IV breast cancer, I don’t think of myself as being sick. I control my cancer just like I would any chronic disease, and I’m able to live a full and wonderful life.”
