Happy birthday Mitzi Bault, survivor, happy dancer

By Linda Waggener

Mitzi McKinley Bault is a very special birthday girl today - celebrating a birthday she never thought she'd get, doing her happy dance with family and friends.

Mitzi is a beautiful, fiesty, petite, says-what-she-means and means-what-she-says, strawberry blond haired woman who looks fantastic no matter what she's wearing.

She was also beautiful when she had no hair at all, deep in the throes of treatment for Ovarian Cancer 3-c.

Mitzi says, "Ten years ago I never would have thought I'd be alive to celebrate a 60th birthday. In 2008 I spent my birthday in U of L, thinking I was having my last birthday at age 51. All I can say is, NOT!!! HAPPY DANCING!!!"

She usually posts a note at bedtime about the day she and her husband Ricky Bault and family shared on McKinley Lane and her messages leading up to this special day have included thoughts like this one, "Before I go to sleep, I will thank God for letting me do some more HAPPY DANCING!!! So look out 2017, I have a lot of things to do and places to go!"

And she signs off each note with a different statement that shares a bit of her personal beliefs, "Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it."

Happy birthday Mitzi Bault, keep the celebration going all year long!
