Even after the second time, it didn't take her spirits. Judie Overstreet, 67, has fought cancer twice - and lived to tell her story.
Overstreet is one of seven children, and one of many in her family who has battled cancer.
Her fight with cancer first began 12 years ago. Cancer cells were found in her uterus. Her treatment required that she undergo six radiation treatments and have a hysterectomy.
"I was blessed," she said.
Before her diagnosis, she said, she had skipped a few appointments with her gynecologist because of insurance problems.
