Since my diagnosis with cancer, I have been amazingly blessed with so much support, prayers and love from my family and friends. I have received countless e-mails, cards, phone calls and visits from so many people. I cannot find adequate words so that I can express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to those who have joined me in this fight against cancer. I would, however, like to give public recognition to the following individuals:
