My living legend is my mom. She is 64 yrs old and has raised her kids on her own. Always living by example. I can not remember a time when she didn’t have a job and going to school. She gives to all freely. Always has. Every one that meets her falls in love with her and quickly adobts her as mom. She has battled cancer 4 times. As I type she is battling chemo for the 3rd time. Never complains. Never gives up. Never shows she’s worried, scared, or shows signs of giving up. She loves her kids completely and unconditionally. I have never met anyone else who has battled cancer as many times as her. I love my mom endlessly. And even if she doesn’t win this prize it would mean so much just for you to recognize her. Thank you.
