Emma Lumpkin

I was born December 25, 1920. I am very happy to say that for over 30 years, I have been cancer free.

At the time of my breast cancer, I was a widow with three grown children. Before my husband died, there was always a houseful of foster children in addition to my own.

Having been a LPN, I know that I should have not ignored the pain that preceded my doctor’s visit. But, I thought I had pulled a muscle and I just kept ignoring it. I guess I was just so busy taking care of others that I neglected myself.

Thank God for so much support from family and friends and for 80 years of life.
