Shanika Smith | Breast Cancer Survivor

“Having breast cancer has taught me so much. It has made me have hope. Even at the worst moments, I just took one day at a time. I am glad for every day.

There are good days and bad days, but the good always outnumber the bad. Never give up hope. Get a great support system to surround you. I found the greatest support in my mother, my sister and my aunt.

Now I plan on going back to school, traveling and enjoying time with my family.”
