Greensboro, NC -- Time flies, especially when you thought you were staring death in the face. 
October 2011, we met Renee Day. She was battling stage four aggressive breast cancer, trying to pay the rent, and struggling to care for her family. Students at Northeast Guilford High School raised money to help her family then.

Now, one year later, she's cancer free, and shes the one giving back.

Day said, "It feels great to be a survivor." She wanted to give back during treatment, so she participated in a Leukemia walk. One of her favorite places to go now is Jordan Lake. She said she just enjoys dancing around the campfire.

She said, "I've always had a strong faith, its stronger now. I have such a renewed faith in God for everything." 

Day and her daughter started a foundation called "Daybreak for Birthdays" to help others fighting cancer. They also knit afghans, hats, and scarves to give to people who need them.
