Angela Bosela - Ohio

I will soon celebrate my 62nd birthday, and on January 24 I celebrated my 6th anniversary of being cancer free.  In January 2007, I discovered that I had stomach cancer.

Melani Vincelli - New Jersey

Like most woman today, I always put my health concerns last. So in January of 2009 when I noticed some pressure under my breastbone, I ignored it. I thought that I am too young for anything to be seriously wrong. I was only 49. I had a stressful job, I sold technology to businesses and with the recession in full swing, I wrote it off as stress. I already had IBS so it had to be that or maybe an ulcer. My husband owned his own business at the time and things were slow. Between his business and my job...my bet was on the ulcer. Besides, my then 21-year-old son needed ...
