Hero of the Month
I was 38 when I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2005. My husband was a pilot in the Navy, and our children were 14 and 3 at the time. I was a professional swimwear model, fitness instructor and fitness competitor. I worked out religiously and ate healthy foods. So I was shocked to hear the words, “You have cancer." - Grace De La Rosa
