When cancer comes back...go surfing
About a month ago, Justin—pictured in Maui this week—got the news nobody wants. She had a recurrence of TNBC in her brain. Doctors were quick in their response and immediately excised the tumor with gamma knife surgery--an amazing process that means the patient can avoid the horrors of brain surgery. She says she is "working on climbing out of my temporary hole and taking hold of life's reins again." Meanwhile, she headed to Maui, where she is learning to surf. "I am determined to beat this sucker," she says. Surf on Justin! Three cheers for attitude—and many, many hugs and prayers.
