Breast Cancer

It was Christmas morning 2011.  I sat on my couch watching my kids open their presents from Santa.  I had an itch and felt a lump, the kind the doctors warn you about, the kind that feels like a marble under your skin; it was unmistakably different from any other lump I had ever felt in my breast.  I swallowed hard and tried to distract myself, but it was no use.  I was in panic mode and for rest of the day and the next several weeks, I struggled to stay above the surface as the beginning chapters of my journey through breast cancer were "written".

On January 31, 2012, I had a mastectomy, I went through chemotherapy from March-August, and had radiation in September and October. As I write this, it is one year later, and now, as my hair grows in and I start to regain my energy, I'm learning to live past the diagnosis and treatments.  



If you're interested in reading more about my journey, you can click on the word cancer under labels on the right sidebar, or click here. My story was also published on a website here as well as the local newspaper here.

Thanks for reading.
