My mother Jane Pulley was a breast cancer survivor. She passed away earlier this year, but she was grateful to have been cancer-free for over a decade.

After fighting lung cancer, my nanny, Gwendolyn Adkins, died from bone cancer. My dear uncle Buddy survived Hodgkin’s lymphoma to be later taken by pancreatic cancer. My dad had basal cell carcinoma, but with a simple procedure is healthy. I am so glad treatment options are available for most cancers. I am happy to live in a world where cancer is no longer a death knell. I hope we continue to discover new ways to combat all cancers.
