In 2007, Rugena Devone -who works at Zimmer Cancer Center - found her role changing from caregiver to patient when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Devone said it was the love of friends and family, and the power of prayer that helped in her recovery. "I’m still here and beautiful as ever," she said.
Devone said she found ways to cope with her diagnosis and treatment."During my treatment I found prayer especially helpful," she said.
These days, she says she has a simple plan."My goals are to stay healthy, keep my priorities simple, enjoy life, never judge and give thanks to God for all things."
