Fellow blogger and cancer survivor Rachel Lozano has won Glamour Magazine's 2008 Woman of the Year contest.
From the Glamour website:
"In 2002 doctors told Lozano that she had a zero percent chance of surviving a recurrence of Askin’s tumor, an extremely rare form of cancer she’d been battling through her teens. But Lozano says what kept her going through surgery and chemo was the idea she’d be able to inspire other kids. She explains: “I realized I would become a brand-new statistic, a symbol of hope for every other person who will ever get cancer.” Now in remission, she’s studying to become an art therapist so she can work with sick children. And she’s become such an eloquent speaker about pediatric cancer that the Lance Armstrong Foundation asked her to meet with members of Congress about it. Says Lozano: “I still have many obstacles ahead of me—including the threat of a relapse. But I’m up for the challenge!” "
I am so happy for Rachel -
Every Day is a Blessing!
