My First Mammogram

by Jacqueline Peters on Jan 17, 2017

When I turned 40 I decided I would be a big girl and do the right thing by getting my mammogram. There was no history of breast cancer, or really any cancer in my very large family, so there wasn't an urgency to "get the girls squeezed". Turns out that this one little exam saved my life, not once, but twice. My 40th mammo showed a lump that ended being malignant. After a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, I was cancer free just around my 41st birthday. At my annual mammogram at the age of 47, the little beast showed up again. This time on the other side. A bilateral mastectomy on my 20th wedding anniversary took care of the beast for good this time. 10 days later I flew to Chicago and w...

My Brave Mother

At the end of July 2015 my sister came home from working a night shift at Kingston Hospital as a RN. Ever since my sister and I were little she would always talk about becoming a nurse, it was a dream that she always had and a dream that she lived.

That morning that she came come home, everything changed. My sister had aches and pains in her legs and arms, to the point where she was struggling to take a shower that day.

My Brave Story

by Stephanie Hardin on Jan 08, 2017

Six years ago, my husband Joe and I set out for East Tennessee from our home in Ohio, to begin a new chapter in our lives. We ended up outside of Morristown in a quiet community that we now call home, on beautiful Cherokee Lake. As hard as it was to move away from our families, children, grandchildren and friends, this has been a place of peace and tranquility for the both of us. The beautiful landscape is icing on the cake!

Over the years we have experienced many memorable occasions with our family and friends, vacationing or visiting the Gatlinburg area and The Great Smoky Mountains National ...
