Sitting at her dining table, Simone looked into the beautiful faces of her three sons.

Two years earlier she had sat at the same dining table, looked into the same faces and told them that she and their dad were getting divorced.

This news was worse.

With a deep breath, she uttered the four words no parent wants to say and no child wants to hear.

“I have breast cancer.”

Simone was just 44 years old.
