As a Reporter, a Story Should Always Leave You Feeling Inspired. - 10/01/13

People often ask me, "what's the craziest story you've ever covered?" Honestly, the crazy ones start to run together after a while. The ones that stick with you are the ones about real people with real problems handling the cards they're dealt with strength and dignity.

This month I have the pleasure of meeting a lot of these remarkable people. I'm putting together a month-long series to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to Central Texas. I take this task very seriously because these women, their husbands and children are important to me.

When you interview someone for a story on their battle with breast cancer, you're basically asking them to tell you, a total stranger, about the worst thing that's ever happened to them. Oh and we want to put it all on camera.

Each time I sit down with one of these ladies, though, they open up, they educate me and they offer a new perspective. Do I ever cry? Yes, I often find myself tearing up. Its not because many of the women I interview are stage IV and will be in treatment for the rest of their lives, but because they know how to live.

If I show one person something they didn't know about breast cancer treatment options or help calm a newly-diagnosed patient's fears, then Ive done my job. I don't want cancer to scare anyone away from a fight. I want them to realize what they're fighting for, just like these incredible women do for me every day.
