July 5th, 2008 – I was here in South Carolina, waiting most of the day for the phone call.  When it came, it tilted my world to a precarious angle and shifted the foundation of all I thought was solid in my life.  Breast cancer.  The second cancer in one year.  I wasn’t sure I had it in me to fight.
July 5th, 2009 – One year already.  And here I am, staying in the same home in South Carolina, surrounded by the same friends who saw me through the initial shock of this day in 2008.  Twelve months have passed, twelve months during which I was upheld and comforted by an army of friends around the globe who never wavered in their love and support.

This five-minute video is my testimony and my thank you card—to each of you and to the God you expressed to me so powerfully in this year of ups and downs, of hope and set-backs, of grief and, ultimately, of joy.  On this anniversary day, I thank God for placing you in my life.
