Cherry is my hero. She lives each day not knowing if it will be her last. She fought breast cancer twice and had a breast removed. Now she is fighting liver cancer. She has done most all of the treatments out there. Her body is so weak, some days she can't raise her head. Her husband works so that they will have insurance, but this means he can't be with her every day.
Nonetheless, Cherry always has positive things to say. She tries to do for others. She takes care of her elderly mother. She pretends to be fine when she is very sick. She will not let you feel sorry for her. She says there are others worse off. She teaches patience, perseverance, faith, love and hope. She humbles me just by her being.
