Bonny O'Brien is my long-time friend, radio personality, and single mom.
She is also in a battle for her life. Bonny has aggressive breast cancer. It was discovered in February, 2013. Like me, Bonny had a "clear" mammogram 6 months before her cancer was diagnosed.
Bonny says she'll be in treatment –literally- for the foreseeable future. She means, years. Until 2015 to get thru her chemo, radiation and surgeries. She will be taking one drug until 2023.
Today, in the middle of her battle, she lives one day at a time. It's actually the sign above her audio console: "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain."
I spent a radio shift with Bonny recently. Here's what she shared with me.
