Sharon: Rock County

I am a Double/Lung recipient (June 2003)

I was unable to get off the couch without my husband helping me, then I joined a StrongWomen class. Now I am able to get off the couch with no help AND I can pick up my grandchildren because I have much more strength and balance.


Deb: Monroe County

I am a Strong Woman.

If you would have told me I could say that 6 months ago, I would have told you it was not possible. Six months ago, I had just finished daily 30 Radiation treatments to my abdomen/pelvis, and two weeks of daily chemotherapy. I finished treatment at 109 pounds on my 5’6” frame, hairless and profoundly weak. I was having issues with continence, difficulty eating and felt like I had lost control of every aspect of my life.
