A couple of months ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
3 weeks ago she underwent a double mastectomy.
She has had such a good outlook upon everything, that it makes you think twice about yourself, when you get soured because things aren't "going right" for you. She has kept her head up high, and has been persevering through her daily life. She is a winner, all the way.
On Valentine's day, she begins her chemo-regime. Keep her in your prayers and hearts, if you will.
