Tamra explains her decision to have her implants removed and her inspiration to move forward.

Then my biopsy came back and my doctor recommended that I have a hysterectomy at my age to be safe. It was early signs of cervical cancer which she called, very aggressive. I had never been so scared in my life. Here I was going through a divorce with three small children and now this. . .Are you kidding me?

After sitting down talking with my doctor, she agreed to do a procedure to try and remove it first and if that didn't work she was going to send me to an oncologist and told me to prepare for a hysterectomy. To her surprise and my answered prayers it worked. Of course now I go in every six months for a check up.

As most of you know Vicki and I have started a new company called WinesbyWives.com It is a monthly affordable wine club that gives 10 percent to a charity of our choice. I have chosen living beyond breast cancer for the first quarter. My charity will change each quarter. If you have a charity you would like me to help, please let me know and I will take a look at it.

The best part of being in my 40s is that I started to feel more secure with my self and acceptive of my body. I now work hard to keep my self healthy with diet and exercise. I love the way I look without my implants and do not miss them at all. I have accepted that I will never look 25, or even 35, again and it kinda sucks. . .not gonna lie!
