KUSA - This month, Joyce Brown is celebrating her 76th birthday, a milestone she worried two years ago she may not reach.
In February 2014, Brown, a mother of five and grandmother of eight, was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.
“I was shocked when I learned I had cancer, I was scared” Brown said. “There is still so much I want to do. I want to travel more and see my grandkids grow.”
Soon after her diagnosis, Brown had surgery to remove the tumors and began chemotherapy treatments. In the early stages of chemo, the standard treatment was working to fight the cancer.
Her long blond hair flew as they danced on a terrace in the magical light of sunset.
That was July.
A mere four months later, Sandy received jolting news. She had been experiencing some unexplained numbness in her left arm. She wasn’t terribly concerned. But a visit to her doctor revealed she had breast cancer.
