About this blog

I was diagnosed with breast cancer on June 11, 2010. As a result of my treatment, I have lymphedema in my left arm. I draw my strength from the Lord, as well as my family's Scots-Irish heritage. Our Graham's were a tough and scrappy bunch of fighters on the Scottish/English border. They came to America and continued to fight when necessary: in the American Revolution; the Civil War; and my brother is a Captain in the U.S. Army. My ancestors settled this country against all odds. My great-grandmothers on both sides of the family were pioneer women who settled the West. Along with that heritage, and the full armor of God, I am walking the walk and fighting the good fight.

My journey, to date

I put this video together over the past couple of days to document my journey thus far. It was a pretty emotional task, and I can't watch it without tears. It's strange how you can do something over a long period of time and not think too much about the overall impact of it. But to see it all condensed into 6 minutes is a much different perspective.


  1. No words, just tears.

    Love and strength to you my friend!

  2. Very nice Tonya! My favorite might be the lint roller though, I tried that a few weeks ago! Stay strong lady!

  3. Wonderful video. Love the song too. Thank you for walking for all of us!
