Ann Herlihy

I have put off writing what my story is because I just wasn’t sure where to get started. I have decided that in many ways my life as I know it now was changed forever when I got the diagnosis of breast cancer in October 2013. I had heard that you never forget where you are and how things looked when you hear those words. And guess what? It’s true. I immediately went into shock and then the tears just started coming. Devastation. Pure and simple. The first thing I thought was that I am going to die. Soon.

It’s over one year later and I’m not dead yet. Lots of changes both good and bad. New ways to think about health and happiness. Closer relationships with friends and family. A new and deeper relationship with a God of my understanding. A new peace. Every day is a new day. A gift to be enjoyed.
