Shannon Miller. Decorated U.S. Gymnast. And A Cancer Survivor.

Shannon Miller, former gymnast, is the most decorated gymnast in U.S. history. She is also a cancer survivor.

  1. What a great story. Who likes to get a PAP smear? No one. Stories like this are a great reminder of why they are important.

    I remember watching Shannon in the Olympics :)

  2. I’m three years overdue, so I will heed this warning and schedule.

    Thanks!
