I am proud to say I have seven wonderful sisters. I love them all so much. I would not be the person I am without my sisters. Some of my sisters are/were very much like a mother to me, taking me in when I left home at the age of 15. We have always been there for one another, in good times and bad.

In June 2007, six out of the eight of us were fortunate to be able to take a trip together to Tybee Island. This trip meant so much to us, not just because we would all be together, but because we were given news that one of us was very ill. My sister, Karen, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Knowing that life is unpredictable and that we should live life to the fullest with the ones we love made this time together all that much more precious.

My sisters are my encouragers, my protectors, my comic relief, my teachers and my family. I love them with all my heart. Thank you for letting me share my story and the picture that makes me happy.
