Woman Surprised With Guard Of Honor At 'No Mo Chemo' Parade
An emotional cancer sufferer could not hold back her happy tears as she was greeted on her return home with a surprise "No Mo Chemo" guard of honor. Dana McSwain, 37, from Charlotte, North Carolina, was visibly shaken by the wholesome gesture, passing between the lines of friends and family, cheering on her every step as tears filled her eyes. Once Dana had made it through the crowds of people at a pavilion near her home, on Saturday, September 12, she soon broke down crying in her husband Mike’s arms. Dana has been diagnosed with Stage 2 metastatic breast cancer, and recently she completed her last session of chemotherapy. But her journey is far from over, as on October 13, she will undergo a seven-hour surgery that will consist of a bilateral mastectomy, temporary breast reconstruction and an oophorectomy, which is the removal of the ovaries and fallopian tubes. Once Dana has healed from surgery, she will begin daily weekday radiation treatment for six weeks. Dana said facing such a challenge is extremely overwhelming, and along the way her friends have been right by her side.
