Whenever a challenge presents itself, Tomeka reminds herself that nothing is impossible. She beat cancer, after all, and the experience has been a completely positive one in the long-term. The whole community appreciates Tomeka’s outlook, which she carries with her no matter what she’s doing—fishing, attending church, traveling, riding motorcycles with her husband, or rooting for the Cowboys.
