This is something that is close to my heart because my oldest sister, Rita Dunnavant, was diagnosed with breast cancer on September 11, 2014.  She has been receiving treatments since that time and continues to fight this dreaded disease.  Rita is 72, lives in the home that we grew up in, was born with cerebral palsy, and has a live-in companion who cares for her around the clock.  She is wheelchair bound now, but still likes to get out and go as much as possible.  As you might imagine, Rita is very special to all of her family!  She has been an inspiration to all of us!  We love her with all of our hearts and wish only the best for her.

I know that breast cancer touches many families.  Let us all continue to FIGHT, HOPE, and PRAY for a cure for breast cancer.  If we all join together, hopefully one day there will be a cure for this dreaded disease!
