CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - I’ve been reading lots of powerful emails from people in the Charlotte area with breast cancer lately, but Cheryl Davis’s note just made me stop.

“Hi, Molly.

I am a 3-month breast cancer survivor, who is 63-years old. In March of 2021, my husband of forty years died of COVID.

In October, I found a lump. Diagnosed with breast cancer on November 3rd.

I’ve gone through rounds of treatment, surgery, reconstruction, and four weeks of radiation.

The hardest thing I have ever done is fighting this disease all alone, without my rock. But, he has shown me he’s with me in spirit. When I was using his clippers to shave my head, I found his box he always used to catch his trimmings. I used the same box. Now, our hair is together, his a little darker than mine. On my last day of chemo, while on my way to the cancer center, a red cardinal flew next to my car window. That was my husband letting me know he was with me.

I joined the Pink Cupcake Walk, and am walking with ‘Can Alone,’ one the subgroups under #TeamMolly.

Can’t wait to be there October 1st, and feel the support of others.

Cheryl Davis”
