Project Pink:
Being strong throughout arduous times is not only a coveted attribute of humans, but it is also a necessity. My mother, Judy Rodriguez, first began her battle with breast cancer when I was seven years old. At the time I didn’t quite understand what cancer was or how hard it was going to be on my family and my mother especially. I remember the long days my parents would spend in Houston for her treatments, the pain on my mother’s face from the radiation burning her skin, and the overall stress this plight had placed on my family. Fortunately, my mother became well again, and we continued our lives as normal. 
Fast forward 11 years, and my mother’s breast cancer came back seeming to seek revenge. During this time I was a senior in high school, and this news greatly rocked our world. I was scared about our financial stability for my mother’s copious treatments, surgeries, and for my college education. However, my mother remained resilient. Even though she was really sick and fatigued at times, nothing – absolutely nothing – could ruin her positive attitude. My mother is the strongest person I know, and I love her very much.
