Stories of Inspiration

Stories of the fighters, believers, and survivors who've inspired us with their determination and hopeful spirit.

  • Sandra Fivecoat Dances

    After surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, Sandra Fivecoat found fun, friendship, and healing in tap dance classes.

    "Tap dancing gave me friends who weren’t survivors. It requires intense concentration and helped me retrain my brain, restore my balance, and strengthen my core after chemotherapy and the hysterectomy."

  • Yvonne Dubra: Spreading Flowers and Faith After Cancer

    Yvonne’s faith is a big factor in her attitude. She delivers unsold flowers from a local grocer to cancer treatment centers, inspired by a store manager’s gift to her during radiation.

    "As a survivor, I want others to see me and know that they can thrive and not just survive. I hope that as I bring flowers to the various clinics, the flowers continue to bring hope and joy to the patients. Bringing hope and brightening up the patients’ days is a blessing to me."
