Three weeks ago I was walking in Cape Town, South Africa and three weeks later I was told I will be dead within weeks to a month or so. Life leaves us all with a lot of questions, but I know I don't blame anyone.
Margaret Corbett Daley, a Chicago icon, passed away from Stage 4 breast cancer on Thanksgiving Eve, 2011. Let us now reflect back on the life of this very charismatic woman who paved a huge path for her adopted city Chicago.
Since I have been allowed this extra time my passion is now helping others who have just been diagnosed with cancer. Nine years later I hope to continue to make a difference. I am so blessed and grateful. I have put my puzzle all together and now I can put it to rest.
Please remember Oct. 13 throughout year. Those of us who suffer with Stage IV breast cancer want others to become aware of our disease. In so doing, we may not have to wait another 40 years before finding a cure.
