It was Oct. 15 of last year when she got the call that any woman would dread after having a breast biopsy.
Elizabeth "Betty Ann" Waidell learned she had breast cancer.
Waidell, of 301 Clark St., Tamaqua, was alone when the call came from her doctor. Her husband was at work.
She admits she was scared.
But then, her attitude changed dramatically. Instead of feeling self-pity, she turned into a fighter.
She developed a strong outlook, proclaiming, "This won't get me."
