This season, The Oprah Winfrey Show is making wildest dreams come true. Nearly 100 viewers wrote to us about their special friend Andree whose dream is to live strong.
After undergoing treatment for breast cancer, Andree was in remission for more than four years. Then, just shy of the five-year mark, her cancer came back.
Despite the weekly chemotherapy she'll have the rest of her life, this mother and first grade teacher's spirits are always up. Fighting cancer every step of the way with her optimistic attidude, Andree and her husband have even turned her chemo appointments into date days!
Throughout her battle, Andree has had one role model, one person she's looked to for inspiration. "Lance," says Andree, "You are my hero. I am in the fight of my life right now and there are days when I can't go on and just wake up and don't want to fight anymore. … You need to know that I just look down at this LIVESTRONG™ [wristband] every single day and you just remind me to live strong. Attitude, prayers, and family and friends are just everything."
