I am One-in-Eight Woman.  Last year I was inducted into the sisterhood of the Amazon Warriors.  Joining the sisterhood is not a choice one makes, it is a choice made for each woman, by our mortal enemy Cancera and her evil spawn Metastazette.

Although we have no super-powers, each sister fights against the senseless cruelty of Cancera to the best of her ability.  But we don’t fight alone – wielding weapons, men and women use their knowledge and skills to aid those of us who battle the enemy directly; they offer us love and support, that gives us the courage to keep fighting; and they help us laugh in her face.

Without these friends and colleagues, and our sisters who fight alongside us, we would have a much harder time finding the strength to defeat Cancera.  Sometimes even with help, one of us will lose her fight, falling to Metastazette, who preys upon those weakened by the struggle with her dam.  We mourn each sister lost; but we celebrate her life and her spirit.

I now face a second battle with the bitch Cancera – others before me have beaten her, and I hold their victories in my heart as I take the field.
