Art: ROSY CHEEKS by Artist Cindy Bontempo (GOSHRIN)
My life was forever changed 10 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was in my early 40's, my hair was so long..down to my knees, I was caring for my husband who just had his aorta replaced do to aneurysm and had suffered a stroke during surgery. I no longer had my breasts, my hair was gone, bloated, weak and pale from the chemotherapy having six months of intensive treatments. I love the outdoors and hike in the near by state forest frequently but there would be no hikes until I won my fight. This painting represents the freedom and respect for every day I am blessed with never taking a day for granted ever again. My husband is mentally disabled now but life is still good. We are happy, healthy, my hair has grown and I have my "ROSY CHEEKS" back. To all my sisters who read this Self Examination can save your life.
