Noelle | 43
I'm Noelle. My Mom is #wonderwoman. Here's Why...
In 2014, at age 43, I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer - a particularly aggressive form of the disease. My husband, children, and I live in Maryland. To maximize my chances of survival, I enrolled in a clinical trial at Dana Farber in Boston. Every week, I had to leave my kids to go to Boston. I couldn't have done it without my mom.
During my two years of treatment - and still to this day - my mom gives 110% of herself to my survival and well-being. She traveled back and forth to treatments with me, stayed with my kids when my husband could join me, and helped to make sure we did not also have to face the financial burden alone. She is my #wonderwoman; knowing when to hug, when to listen and when to just let me be but never letting me fall. I love you, mom, and appreciate you beyond any measure.
