“As Survivors, We Will Overcome” Survivor: Gayla W.
By: New Balance
Years as a survivor Nine years.
Gayla's Story I am a survivor because I treat everyday as if it is my last. If it is my last, I will be remembered for the smile on my face. I smile no matter how I feel, or what's going in my life. If you don't have a smile, you will feel that there is no hope. Hope is a joyful word. Hope is believing I look and feel good at all times. As survivors, we will overcome whatever comes our way. Sisters of the survivor world, we will overcome!
How are you involved in the fight throughout the year? You don't have to be a breast cancer survivor. You are a survivor of some kind of sickness, or something going on in your life...But I focus on making people feel good about themselves. I want them to say “If she can do it so can I.”
I donate my time for free to help out. It's not about money to me to make someone feel better. I get my reward from the smile on their faces!
