Teresa is a survivor through and through, having won two battles against breast cancer. Her secret weapon? A positive attitude. It wasn’t easy, she says, but her decision to stay optimistic allowed her family to feel better about the situation: "It helps them help you."
Today, Teresa’s been cancer-free for nearly a decade, and her positive attitude is still holding strong.
