Busey Associate Kimberly Gomez“The phrases “Everything happens for a reason” and “Patience is a virtue” can often seem trite, but I’ve always believed in them whole-heartedly. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010, it became challenging to maintain that belief.  With the diagnosis came a plethora of questions, emotions and fears. Through faith, family, reflection and a courage that I did not know I possessed previously, I was able to overcome the most difficult time in my life.  Today, almost eight years later, I can look back and be proud of my journey. We are never given a “why,” but I do know as a survivor I have been able to be a strong support system for my mother who began her own battle with breast cancer five years after me. “Patience,” among other things, certainly HAS been a virtue for me and my family—and I am so happy to be living strong!”
