Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease.
Throughout this month ASD will honor someone within our school community who has persevered through this journey!
Today we show our support to Mrs. Paula Spruill,
A staff member at AES who works with Special Needs Children. Mrs. Spruill has worked in ASD for 22 years.
These are her reflections regarding her story on her Breast Cancer journey. “........I’ve turned it over to God. My AES family has been my rock. My family and friends have been praying for me and that has carried me through my moments.......
I look at it in a humorous way. If you let it get you down it will. Work keeps me going strong. It’s the attitude you have towards it. You can keep it moving or you can be down and out.....
Of course, I’m worried and scared! The doctors orders were for me to remain off work for 6-8 weeks. I told the doctor I can’t do that to my babies, they need me; I need them. I only took 2 weeks because I LOVE what I do......”
At AES her nickname is “Stubborn Spruill” because she refuses to be defeated!!
Please join us in showering this pillar of strength with
