“I thought getting diagnosed with cancer was overwhelming, but what was even more overwhelming was the support I got after the diagnosis.”

Today’s unsung hero is Marion. A while back she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It went into remission, then came back again.

And I thought I had it tough.

In talking to Marion last night, I learned a few things: Marion is strong. Marion is beautiful. And Marion is human.

She knows she’s going to overcome cancer, but right now it hurts. Right now it’s not easy. Her biggest complaint, however, in the midst of all of this, is that she has to miss work at the Justa Center, a job in which she provides housing for the homeless. And she’ll be the first to tell you, she’s GOOD at what she does.

Meeting people like Marion puts life into perspective. In the midst of her trial, she is trying to find a way to serve those less fortunate than herself. That’s why Marion is today’s Unsung Hero. Thank you Marion. We love you.

Who is your Unsung Hero?
