​​who is a fighter

a fighter does not inspire simply because they have cancer.

a fighter inspires because of the character with which they fight it.

a fighter faces challenges with unwavering positivity and relentless hope - hope that she might take every opportunity to make a difference in this world.

she fights not just for a cancer cure but for love and laughter and life.

michelle fought for all of these things and now we will continue the fight!
