Has a health scare turned your life upside-down? Share the story with us.

It's human nature to chug along day to day, accepting life as normal and possibly not giving things as much thought as we could. 

We're all busy, and for better or worse, sometimes it's a nasty shock that prompts us to look at our lives and take stock.

We want to hear about a health scare in your life, and how it changed your perspective. 

Did your priorities shift when you got that scary diagnosis? How did it effect your relationships with friends and family?

Fingers crossed you've got a clean bill of health now, but either way, we want to hear about what suddenly seemed important when it looked like your health was in danger.
