Congrats to Gulfport Patch reader Kelli Guinn, a breast cancer survivor who was selected as the winner in our recent spa gift certificate contest.
We asked Patch readers to comment on our story and tell us why they needed a day at the Healthy Being Wellness Center in St. Pete.
Here's what kelligirl had to say:
It’s been an arduous 38 months dealing with two separate breast cancers. I have had a lumpectomy, a mastectomy, a few surgery related infections and a nine hour latissimus dorsi flap procedure that encompassed a week in the hospital.
From that surgery, I acquired a resistant life-threatening whopper infection that challenged my health and state of mind for nine months. I have endured several surgeries and hospitalizations fighting off this horrendous disease. My last surgical procedure in the reconstruction phase will be Feb. 22nd. Yahoo!
A deep massage would be my first breath of fresh air as a whole person and a survivor!
Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who entered and to Healthy Being for the $25 gift certificate prize!
