Family, I would say is the most important part of a person's life. My mother was very supportive, she was my nurse, my daughter was my little nurse. She used to sleep on the floor, she'd lay there every little move, >mom, are you okay? Can I do anything for you?' She'd help me take a bath, and I mean, it was, her and my mother were just, just wonderful.

I have friends from many tribes, they were my support, when I was in the hospital, they all came, they had prayers for me, they brought food to the home, their my family, a wonderful spiritual family. Prayers, having faith in God and believing with all your heart, that you can overcome this, it makes you stronger and you're able to support others."
