Angels Watching Over Me

by Wendy Love Schuppan

Last year I was diagnosed with breast cancer on my birthday. That word is the worst one in the English language, but I decided not to let it get me down. After a double mastectomy with a great surgeon and wonderful oncologist, I started my fight. So so much happened it is hard to explain, yes I gave up a few times, but my angel wouldn't let me. You see, I have nearly died four times in my life. Everyone thinks that I am strong, believe me, not always.

I also have so many angels in my life, my husband, my friends, my sister and the wonderful friends I have met through a cancer program at our YMCA.

Angels come in many forms, and I am so glad I have mine.
