HER STORY

"It wasn't supposed to come back," she said.

She says jokingly that three times is the charm: That's the number of times she has kicked cancer.

Her cancer came back while she was still receiving treatment, still feeling sick.

"I was ready to quit," she said. "You get like that for a couple days."

She didn't give up, and she has been cancer free for nearly two years.

HER ADVICE

"Keep a positive attitude," Mrs. Morgan said.

She gets better nutrition and gets checked every three months for any recurrence of breast cancer.
