Lori Faire

Age diagnosed: 37

Years battling breast cancer: It was two years before I got through everything, from date of diagnosis to finishing reconstruction

The hardest part: "One of the biggest things was losing my hair and the chemo therapy. I didn't get sick, I just felt like I was in a fog all the time. Nothing tasted right."

Her advice for others: ?The biggest key is to have a very good positive attitude. Have a close network of friends and family and always stay around positive people. When you are around negative people or anything negative it will bring you down. It doesn't matter what you are going through, you've just got to stay around positive people.

Great article. You are right on about staying positive and keeping away from negative people. There are so many more positive people in this world. Prayers and positive people sure make things much better.
