I'm Marilyn Schultz and I’m a survivor since 1983 and I’m just happy to be here to celebrate all of these people that have survived. And the fact that we’re getting out so much more information so we can cut that statistic one in every eight women. I’d loved to see that drop so that we would not have that many individuals getting it. Its things like this that get the money for the research that we so desperately need. It’s just wonderful to be out here and celebrate and I’m here to celebrate the fact that my son is a survivor of another kind of cancer 6 years ago. So I’m here for Sean. I’m also here celebrating in a way the life and the memory of a friend who died actually on the 28th of October in 2004. But my story is a positive one because I have to put in a plug for a good family support which I had. I was really quite young when this happen and I think it can be very devastating to yourself concept to loose one of your feminine body parts. But you have a husband and a family that it was so supportive and had me laughing in stitches before I was even off pain medicine. Really did a big difference.
