How to Survive Cancer Three Times and Still Have a Smile on Your Face

Donna Deegan is a super hero. She's been battling cancers since 1999 and instead of breaking down from the mental and physical stress, she's running marathons, helping other women pay their medical bills, and spreading awareness about the disease. Donna was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1999 when she was a news anchor in Florida. She decided to keep a blog (yes, a blog in 1999!) to keep her viewers updated on her treatments and progress. She began receiving letters from people who were also fighting breast cancer but were having trouble making ends meet when it came to the incredible treatment bills. These people inspired her to create The Donna Foundation which used her public reputation to help find a solution to medical bills. "I hoped that by sharing my story, I would help other women become better advocates for themselves during their journeys with breast cancer." After fighting off the first bought of cancer with chemotherapy, Donna found out that her cancer was back again, and in 2008 she was told that it was back for a third time. All the while, Donna was still keeping up with the Donna Foundation to help women struggling with bills on top of a life threatening disease.

How to Love Your Body

Tell Yourself You Love You Look in the mirror and tell yourself that you rock. You're beautiful, you're unique, and your body can do some pretty amazing things. Start by trying it just a day. Smile at yourself in the mirror instead of frowning. Strike a hilarious pose. Rock out to your favorite playlist first thing in the morning in front of the mirror and love the skin you're in. If you waste your life thinking 'I'll do this once I'm skinny," or "I can't do this because I'm not thin enough, not pretty enough, not fashionable enough," then you're going to have a lot of regrets once you miss out on your youth. You can do whatever you want, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Hell, if you can get out of bed in the morning, you're a miracle. Treat Yourself with Respect Sure, its fun to make fun of ourselves from time to time (I'm always late, my shoes never seem to match my outfit, and my hair is nearly always a train wreck) but you also need to give yourself a break. If you keep calling yourself names and putting yourself down, chances are it will stop being a joke and you'll just start believing it.
