Amy had surgery in late October 2014. She spent three days in the hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina following her surgery. One week later, she was up on her feet and back to football games at East Rutherford High School. I'm the head football coach there and she didn't want to miss a game. Throughout the next three months, Amy had 30 rounds of radiation and six rounds of chemotherapy. She did extremely well with her treatments. Amy was very strong throughout and her doctors were amazed with how well she did. Her attitude was awesome. She knew she could beat the cancer and so far she has.
She will have a follow up PET scan in September to make sure she is cancer free. We celebrated Amy's 40th birthday in April this year. We also celebrated her beating this awful disease that takes so many lives. In May of this year, Amy attended her first NASCAR race in Charlotte. She immediately feel in love with the sport. She is looking forward to attending another NASCAR race soon. After the race, we found out about Racing 2 Cure. What a great thing y'all have going. Just felt like nominating Amy because she is a cancer survivor and a very strong woman.
