BATTLING BASS… BEATING BREAST CANCER
IT’S NOT FISHING FOR A CURE… ITS ABOUT FISHING THROUGH
THE FIGHT.

FISHING TO WIN OR WINNING TO FISH

BASS FISHING MY WAY THROUGH BREAST CANCER

I feel lucky to live where I do… close to one of the most beautiful lakes
in Tennessee.  Barkley Lake is almost like my back yard. I always
appreciated it, Harvey and I have spent many hours on that lake,
fishing local tournaments, trying out new baits, getting ready for the
“BIG” tournaments that I had the opportunity to fish in the Women’s
Bassmaster Tour, however none of the time I spent on that lake fishing
with my best tournament partner… life partner has been more
important than the last 6 months…

I was diagnosed with BRCA II breast cancer 6 moths ago. I never
thought you’d hear that from me,  I fought in the gulf war, made it
through all sorts of chemical exposures, illnesses from who knows
what, in fact most people who know me think I’m near invincible…
including me. A good friend of mine got breast cancer 3 years ago and
I was surprised, she just didn’t seem like the type to get cancer. I
watched her go through it… chemo, double mastectomy, radiation…
the works. And I admired her courage and cheered her on, never once
thinking that could be me. And now it is.

When you’re told you have cancer, everything changes for you… but
for others it stays the same. The doctors appointments, the treatments,
the surgeries and the side effects and immediately you start making life
decisions… some life saving, some just about life.

At first, I wasn’t going to tell many people about my breast cancer. I just
didn’t want to be a breast cancer poster child, or have people pity me,
not my style. I just figured, I would handle this like everything else in
life… I’m a soldier; you suck it up and move on. So that’s what I did…
for the past six months, had a double mastectomy, have been going
through chemo every 2 weeks, reconstruction… and fishing. And what’
s what makes the difference for me along with a whole lot of prayers,
and the help of God.

I wake up and many days I think I could just stay in bed all day, feel bad
and try to get through this. OR I can go fishing… And that has not only
been my choice, but my salvation, being on the water close to some of
gods most beautiful creations, those of you who fish know what I’m
talking about.

When it’s right before first light… it’s freezing cold out and your putting
the boat in the water… the smells… the lake has a smell of it’s own first
thing in the morning and when you fire up that outboard and get the
first whiff of smoke coming off the engine… and the sight of the sun
rising, you are easily reminded why you are there. It’s a little bit easier
to muster up the strength and get past the nausea and get in that boat
as the sun starts to rise and you feel alive. Fishing takes a special kind
of person and being able to share that with my husband has made this
experience better for both of us. When you get on that trolling motor
and make that first cast, you start to focus on catching that first fish.
And when you do, it doesn’t matter how many days after chemo it is,
that your body has betrayed you or that you felt like you know what…

FISH ON! Changes everything, even if just for the moment. When you
get that fish to the boat, and see that you’ve got a lunker… life just got
a little bit better. During the last six months, Harvey and I have been
fishing in our local tournaments on Lake Barkley… MY will to fight to
get up to go fish has created a stronger fight for me to beat this
cancer, so that I will continue to enjoy fishing for many years to come…
but it has what has kept me strong through this battle with breast
cancer… you see, not only have we been holding our own as a team
fighting breast cancer… we have been kicking butt on the water.  The
will to win runs deep… whether your fighting breast cancer or fishing
for bass. With all this I would like to gives a special thanks to all of you
out there for all of your prayers, and support.

Thanks so very much again !
