Breast Cancer Warrior
Barbara is one of those highly intelligent, socially aware moms who is good at just about everything - yoga instructor, marathon runner, successful scientific consultant, great cook, witty, urbane and she will take anyone on in a debate over just about any topic they may wish to name.
And then one day, she learns she has breast cancer, and is facing a couple of years of painful surgery, radiation and gut-wrenching chemo.
I was inspired to observe her tackle every difficult curve that was thrown her way with grace and a defiant determination and finally to triumph over this terrible disease. Yoga enthusiast will recognize this as a "warrior pose". What they won't know is that Barbara performed it after several hours of rigorous cross-country skiing while between two chemo sessions.
This image signifies not only the victory of one breast cancer warrior, but it is a tribute to all of the approximately one-in-seven women who will someday find themselves breast cancer warriors.
