We Will Survive!

Cancer Survivors Tribute in the Houston Galleria Mall.

On Saturday, June 4, the Houston Galleria mall was mobbed – flash mobbed- by an explosion of  pink power as more than 100 breast cancer survivors, our friends and family members performed a dance tribute  to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.  I was in the mix dancing as disco diva Gloria Gaynor sang her timeless hit, ‘I Will Survive. ” 

Much of the love and gratitude goes to Houston philanthropists Lester and Sue Smith, whose organization Pinkwell.org    is dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer.

It was an exhilarating experience to be among women like me, who are  not just surviving but loving life and beating cancer, one day at a time.  And the lyrics to Ms. Gaynor’s song will always be with me: ‘as long as I know how to love, I know I will survive. I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give, I will survive . . . I will survive.’
