Shawna Robinson diagnosed with breast cancer

Former NASCAR driver Shawna Robinson, the first woman to win a pole in what is now the Nationwide Series, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Robinson, who now works in interior design and is creator and owner of Happy Chair which restores old chairs, announced on her Facebook page this week that she would begin five to six months of chemotherapy and then require surgery. Here is her entire post:
"I'm getting ready to start a new journey that was unexpected but I am prepared to take it on as I would any challenge ..with direction and strength. I have breast cancer...when they tell you you have cancer you don't hear the rest you just see talking and you seem to be there but your not hearing the words. But it is real, start Chemo next week for 5-6 months then surgery....there is such progress in cancer treatment.....still scared but prepared for battle. Thankful for the family and friends....I'm blessed to have....ready to go wide open and get this thing!!!"(Charlotte Observer)(3-27-2014)
I miss you Frehley........

Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Many have paved the road before you
and support your efforts. Prayer, laughter, and a good attitude will make time pass quickly.

A.B.E.

Best of thoughts and prayer to you and your Mom. Life is a wild trip
down a trail with no map. The best news is, there have been major advances
with this disease. Success now replaces what used to be a given.

We all care, we have Mothers, Grandma's, Sisters, and Aunts. The Nation
is now behind a solution to this demon.

Best to you and your Mother.
