Survivor Story: Sandra Frazier

07/18/2013
In March of 2011, I was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer.  I had no warning signs, and my diagnosis was accidental.  An unrelated case of gallstones, and a longer-than expected recovery from the gallbladder surgery, eventually led to a CT scan that revealed a tomato-sized tumor on my pancreas.  The next few weeks and months were a roller coaster of emotions.  I began to wonder if I would be around to see my three boys grow up.

Not only was I able to kick cancer's butt, I also found the strength to run Cap City in May, 2012.  Today I am training for my 5th half marathon and even though it is NOT easy, it is definitely worth the effort!  I count my blessings every day.  I am very thankful because today I'm still alive and well!  I appreciate every single minute with my family and friends.
