Nominated by her husband David and her sister-in-law Anne
My nominee is Meredith, my sister-in-law. Meredith had both breasts removed the spring of 2017. She endured 3 months of chemo treatments and two more surgeries to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes in the fall of that year. She was declared cancer-free on Thanksgiving 2017 – she’s a survivor and she beat cancer!
That’s the bones of her story – but what I’d like to convey is her incredible spirit and attitude throughout her battle with cancer. Meredith has been nothing but inspirational, facing painful and fearful months of diagnosis, surgery and rehab. She has never complained once! And she has had plenty to complain about. That’s just Who She Is. Whenever we saw her or heard from her that year, her concern was always for others and not herself. She has always been that way; I’ve never met anyone as positive and selfless as Meredith. When I asked her about applying for this retreat she immediately said that she wouldn’t want to take the spot of someone else more deserving! Well, I’m nominating her despite her reticence, because she deserves it! And your other cowgirls deserve to know her – she will be a source of bottomless encouragement to them.
