In Recovery From Cancer!

Holly is a close personal friend, whom, I met through OneRepAtATime.net through owner Marv. Marv is one of my best buddies. I'll tell you he calls himself One Rep (O.R.) Marv, but in all transparency if you read this all the way until the end I'll tell you his real first name and embarrass him because his girlfriend is the true warrior and deserves your read and support most of all! Holly had been battling breast cancer for nearly two years, and took the most aggressive approach to get rid of it. Non-FDA approved medications and partial removing of breasts....
