19-JUL-2011 Cindi Smith


Keller, TX

My Survivor Sister, Lisa (one of my best friends), had this tattoo done around her belly button. I had to stop by there on the way home from work and she was cleaning the pool so I got a shot of her belly.

She was an instrumental part of my survival of breast cancer as she had it a couple of years before I did. She was such a huge help and full of knowledge on what to do when I was going through stuff. Because of God, Lisa and her husband Jeff, as well as my extrodinary family, I don't know what I would have done. I love them all with all of my heart.

I am so blessed to have this woman in my life and God truly blessed me with the family he gave me. My heart is so full of love for them that right now I've got a tear running down my cheek. Gosh, I can't put into words what they mean to me.

Thank you, Lord, for my wonderful family and all the people in my life! I wish I could name them all but it would be a very long list. Okay, gotta stop writing or I'll cry a river here. But, not tears of sadness but tears of joy!

Cindi: I sent your comments on to a good friend of mine who is also a survivor. She means the world to me and I just wanted to share your story with her.

Isn't family wonderful? I'm touched by your words and feel that same about my sisters and family. Yes cancer has touched many of our lives.
