The day seemed like it would never arrive.
Carin Henderson was diagnosed with breast cancer on Feb. 8, 2011. She went through a double mastectomy and weeks of chemotherapy before her doctors told her that the cancer was gone in August. Scans throughout the year had proved that she remained in remission.
But that milestone of one year as a cancer survivor required a celebration.
“Coming up on February 8 this year was really emotional for me. I wanted to do something just to recognize that I had gotten through it,” Henderson said.
