Joy McCabe has a lot to be thankful for this week.

She learned that she had a brain tumor around this time last year.

McCabe had surgery in December 2015 on a benign cystic meningioma, and she is doing great.

"I couldn't have gotten through it without my faith and the hope that God gives us," said McCabe. "I look at every day differently now."

She adds that she is grateful for the love and support of her husband, son, friends and other family members.

She looks forward to cooking a big Thanksgiving meal on Thursday.
