The woman who inspired me the most was my Mom. She passed away one year ago but she taught me kindness, love, patience and that you should rest when you're tired;) Love you, Mom!

My son's grandmother is very inspirational. Though we are not related by blood she is a close friend. She battled breast cancer 5 years ago as well as diabetes and multiple sclerosis. She has constant medical problems but you would never know it from the smile on her face and her willingness to lend a hand to anyone who needs it!

My grandmother insprires me - she diagnosed herself with colon cancer (she was a RN), did some chemo and said it wasn't for her and pre-planned the rest of her life to a 't'.

My mom also inspires me, she went through cervical cancer when I was in high school and never told me or my little sister. Her and my dad went through it alone inhopes of not upsetting us. She's ok now and I'm thankful. :)

I have 3 sisters and my mother are the women that inspire me the most,you see when things are bad or they go wrong they are always there,we can do anything as long as we have each other,my dad recently has had some health problems and we are a very close family and if we did not have each other to lean on I am not sure how we would have gotten through it,I am the youngest so they have always been my inspiration they make a big deal over my smallest victories to boost my self esteem and I know they are all always in my corner no matter if we are fighting or not,lol.

Derek, Brooke, Allie and Avery said...

My cousin has been an inspiration to me. She developed a form of cancer (NF2) when she was 16. She has since become deaf b/c of it and has very little vision left. It's hard to communicate with her but she tries her hardest to. She still has the biggest heart and such a great sense of humor despite all of the trials (and there are many) that she's been thru.

The person who inspires me is a girl who was a couple years older than me, Tammy, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in her early thirties. She never let it get her down and she kept on going and was very strong about it all. She did a lot of planning ahead for her children and I always admired her for that.

My mother was my biggest inspiration. She passed away from lung cancer in 1992 and is sadly missed. She taught me to always be kind to others and always lend a helping hand to those in need. She always gave her time putting others before herself. Even when she was sick and way too young going through this she never once lost her faith. What a beautiful song on the site Pink Together. Thank you so much!

The person that has inspired me the most has to be my mother. For the last 10 years of her life she endured a lot of medical issues but always was there when her kids needed her for advice or just needed to be heard. Even the day she died you would have never knew she was feeling bad.

My sister's friend inspires me with her wonderful attitude after being diagnosed this summer with breast cancer, undergoing surgery, and now having chemo treatments. She remains positive & upbeat. God bless her. If I win this Inspiring Hope gift basket I will give it to her.

Sometimes it's hard to do that with people that have not endured this no matter how close they may be.
