The family and friends of Teri Bode are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

Teri is an Amazing Woman. Shes full of life and energy. She didnt know or ask me to do this for her...here is her story: 

 

It all started in 2000 with my first diagnosis of breast cancer.  I had a mastectomy and was told they got it all so no treatment needed!   2 years later.....another lump....same breast.  This time I had 16 weeks of radiation after the lump was removed.  Again.....I was told we got it all and any lingering cells were killed of by the radiation treatment.  GREAT news!  I was done with cancer....atleast I thought.....until 11 years later..October 2011 when I started experiencing horrible back and rib pain.  Weeks went by until it got to the point where I couldn't walk and I was throwing up.  My daughter found me on the kitchen floor and immediately called my friend Pam,  telling her she needed help.       Within 20 minutes Pam and my mother were by my side.....both agreeing this was much more than a simple back ache.  After many tests and tons of bloodwork it was discovered my breast cancer had metastasized to my spine and ribs.  Needless to say, the fight began!  16 weeks of radiation to the bones,  chemotherapy every other week, monthly injections and countless pills!  A year later and I 'm still fighting, strong and hard, thanks to friends and family!  My cancer as it stands today is treatable!  Thank God for cancer research and all the support people give to the many organizations out there........it works....I'm living proof! I intend to keep fighting, to stay strong and most importantly keep living my life to the fullest!  Positive attitude!!!!!

 

She means a lot to many people. She fight for her mother and especially her 16 year old daughter. Please show support!!
