I'm A Survivor: Relay For Life Participant Shares Her Story
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Relay for Life brings the community together to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease.
Cindy Wolf was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 during her routine mammogram exam, the doctor found a spot.
"The doctor came in and asked if I had a surgeon and that's when I realized this was serious and bad” said Wolf.
It was that moment in wolf's life that changed everything.
She was in the hospital for multiple days and underwent chemotherapy and surgery.
"I still have bad days and its been 17-months later and I still have challenges and I'm still on medication. There are rough days but as a whole without Relay in my life, I don't know if I would have been as strong as I had been,” said Wolf.
Wolf has been involved with relay for life since 2007; the organization helped her get through a rough time in her life and kept her positive.
"Participating in Relay for Life I've met a lot of survivors so I know it's not a death sentence, I knew there was hope and knew there was an avenue to look into."
Now a survivor for 17-months, Wolf plans to be around for her grandchildren's graduations and weddings.
"When I'm dancing at my youngest grandsons wedding I'll be able to say I'm a survivor of 32-years."
