Cancer survivor talks about her journey

Fun, and a good attitude, describes Kim Walsh, a breast cancer survivor from Alta. Walsh has been cancer free for nine-plus years. This December, it will be 10 years.

Walsh recalls the day she had her annual mammogram and was called in to discuss something that was seen on the scan back in December 2008. She had just turned 50. She mentioned she had been called in before, so she wasn’t too concerned until the doctor started talking about lumpectomy, radiation and chemotherapy. She said, early on, “I’m going in with a mindset that life is good.”
