  • Never Lose Hope, by Anne Hansen

    By: FreeToBreathe

    November 30 2011

    We were not about to let cancer take over his life and neither was he. We gave him all the support, hope and will to live. We truly believe that the biggest part of fighting cancer is mental. Its a will to live and not give up.

    November 28 2011

    I have seen my children become adults, marry, and start their families. I am enjoying life and my three delightful grandchildren...In 2010 I saw the ad for the “Free to Breathe” walk and joined the walk for the first time. I am very grateful there is now an organization to help and support those suffering from this horrible disease. Through the years, I have tried to offer support, comfort, and hope to other patients and will continue to try and do this.

    I am humbled to say that we have been given strength beyond our greatest hopes. My marriage and my children are thriving and we remain realistically optimistic. There are moments of sadness, sometimes they overwhelm us. But we refuse to let cancer rule our lives. We have chosen to live each day with hope and great joy. This, above all else, is my source of strength.

  • Raising Awareness for his Mother - Eric Dunevant and Debi Walsh

    Raising Awareness for his Mother - Eric Dunevant and Debi Walsh

    By: FreeToBreathe

    November 07 2011

    When my mother got lung cancer I didn’t really know what it was, I was only 3 years old. All I knew was that it was kind of weird knowing that she could have died so easily. Now it’s been eight years since she got it. Her one dream was for her to live long enough for me to have graduated fifth grade and she has so far exceeded that dream, but even now it’s scary to know that she could get cancer again at any moment.
