Regular readers of this blog know that we are following Phyllis Bush, retired Indiana teacher and a member of the Board of the Network for Public Education. Phyllis was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and she decided to fight it head on, with humor, the best medical treatment she could find, and true grit.

In this post, she describes her birthday, which was always a joyous occasion.

No self-pity, but a heap of determination and insight.
