The 2009 Sherry’sRun will honor breast cancersurvivor and one of thefounding members of BreastCancer Friends, MelanieHunt.Melanie shared herstory with Sherry’s Run:“I am a breast cancersurvivor. It was May 2000 when I felt a knot in mybreast. I knew that thisknot felt different. In January of 2001, eightmonths after feeling theknot, I underwent my
nal surgery to removethe remaining cancer, abilateral mastectomy anddissection of my sentinellymph nodes. My diagnosis was ductal carcinomainsitu – the best type of breast cancer to have, yet with all the waiting anddelays, it proved to be hardon the nerves, but God tookgood care of me. InitiallyI was told I would have 6-8 weeks of radiation andprobably some chemo. Oncethe bilateral mastectomy was done and it was foundthat the lymph nodes wereclear, I didn’t have to haveradiation or chemotherapy.My oncologist, whenI told him how blessed I felt,told me he understood butthat I truly did not know just how fortunate I was.For me to have actually feltthe knot while the cancerremained contained in themilk ducts, especially sinceit branched throughout themilk ducts and clustered inmulti-areas of the breast, without spilling out intothe surrounding tissue wasvery rare. The other breasthad several calci
cationsthat may or may not havedeveloped into cancer. Thebad news he said was thatif it returned, it would bevery aggressive; but, thegood news far outweighedthe bad as he said I had a97 to 99 percent chance of itnot returning. Then, I reallyknew how blessed I was.My loving husband,Pete, my dear family, friendsand church family werethere supporting me all the way; but, during all of this,much to my surprise, otherpeople started reaching outto me – people that hadbreast cancer, people thatI didn’t even know. They would call and send lettersof support and inspirationalitems of encouragement.One of those people wasMarilyn Smith. Marilyn hadbreast cancer. Although Ihad never met her, shereached out to me withsuch compassion andkindness that it movedme. In the mail oneafternoon, I received twolittle soft t-shirts fromMarilyn. She sent thembecause she knew that I was getting ready to havea double mastectomy andthought that the cloth would be soft on my skinas I recuperated. Marilyn was just one of manyladies, initially strangers, who wanted to help meand others who werefacing cancer.Marilyn saw positivein everything. She toldme that cancer was just another adventure inher life; although not theadventure she would haveparticularly chosen. She was one of many who werehelping others who werefacing breast cancer. When we lost Marilyn, I, along with others, picked up – trying to be there for anyone we were aware of that hadbreast cancer. We soonrealized that we could do somuch more if we could getothers together and be moreorganized. On January 10,2005, a group of ladies metin my home and realized we were doing good individually;but, could do so much moreas a group. So that evening,Breast Cancer Friends wasborn with the help of: Faye Jackson, Betty Robinson,Margie Scott, Betty Wood,Pam Anderson, JoanWagner, Carol Perkins, FayeKieffer, Suzanne Tignor,Peggy Fox plus supportgroups from surroundingcounties, American CancerSociety, Vicki Gordon –
