Lori Elliot, 31, lives with her family in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and is now cancer free. She is photographed playing “tea time” with her children, James and Grace.
“Having great doctors take care of me, that helped my cancer diagnosis . . . but I think the best thing that’s helped me, because it does get so overwhelming, is taking it day by day, step by step, doctor’s appointment by doctor’s appointment, blood work by blood work. I think we live in such a world where you’re just rushed, rushed, rushed, and it’s literally slowing down and being thankful and enjoying the small moments of life.”
