Not letting something not hold me was the bad news after surviving brain cancer at 5 months old.I have the body of a 10 year old girl after the treatments were done.Parents were told I would not grow up to be a normal female,chemo treatment did a number to my pituitary gland effecting growth of my bones and skin.I learned that I was like any normal kid growing up.Now 43,I still don't let this hold me back.My parents are happy knowing I learned things in life happen bad and good.I work with dad and he sees it,do auto repair.Have a stool that keep in front of my toolbox to get to the upper drawers.I do what our employees and dad do.The employees,they are glad I don't let this hold me back.One employee,he has a 15 year old daughter that went has been through this as well and taught her well.She has the body of an 8 year old looking up to me.
