My hero is my mother. I know everyday I wake up that each day above ground is a good day. My mother has had Hodgkin's Disease & just recently overcame Breast Cancer. My mother works a full time job, even through radiation treatments, is always there when people need her & never lets the world bring her down. She is a "buddy" of a student in Pontiac, MI because this student needed guidance in her life and my mother felt she had so much extra time that she should be changing someone's life for the better. She has helped put both my sister and I through college, has supported and encouraged us every day and always reminds us to never give up. She is my hero because she has overcome so many things that I know there would never be a reason to give up. She has come so far and shown me to stay strong and persevere through the good, the bad & the ugly times.
