"Christmas 2004 was a special tim <a href="http://coat.ge4all.org">duvetica coat rail hooksgreen</a> e for me -- earlier that year, I was diagnosed with cancer and knew that I might not survive. So Christmas was extra special that year -- just surviving the cancer treatments, still alive and celebrating the birth of Jesus with my family.



The best Christmas present Carol Cruise ever got wasn't wrapped with a ribbon and tucked under the tree.



"Like many folks, when I was growing up, my parents didn't spend a lot of money for gifts. We got the typical fruit, candy, a toy and maybe a new coat.



But four years later, Cruise,duvetica coat rail hooksgreen, manager of the City Utilities Transit Department, said she's still enjoying her most precious gift:



"So I've not placed much emphasis on getting 'stuff' for Christmas for myself. I have four boys (five, counting my husband) so my special Christmas memories center around them, the fun my husband and I have seeing the joy on their faces when opening their gifts.





"I'd have to say that was one of my best Christmas gifts - the gift of life!"
