Today I received news that a lady I know,  Monique,  passed away last night.

Monique was a co-worker who was diagnosed 6 months before me. She had a rare situation: she had been diagnosed with two types of breast cancer, one in each breast. Treatment for one was not necessarily the best for the other.

Though she returned to work in 2007 after her treatments, it wasn’t long before metastases appeared.

She fought right to the end and was a true Thriver.

Rest in peace, Monique. The sisterhood continues the battle.
