When I do see me here,


Who has battled for MY life twice.

And who finally SEES beauty through MY journey. Not just with flowers, but MY scars have become marks of strength and hope.

I am beautiful inside and out.

I will continue to see ME, all of ME!

– Susan Castillo, amazing wife, proud mother of two children, and survivor
