I am a 3X Cancer Survivor since I was 14 . I had HD, Schwanoma . (cancer of the lining of the nerve) and Thyroid. I was diagnosed with BC Dec 11 2014. It was caused from the radiation treatment I had 33 years ago. I am now 47 . I'm not sure what form of cancer, because I was suppose to go today to get the results of finding out how much chemo I am receiving. I will also be going through a double mastectomy with reconstructive surgery after my chemo treatments. What I take from my past experiences, is that I am stronger than strong, and "Laughter is the best Medicine"! Life throws us a curveball, that is meant to hit us, not dodge It will mould me and shape me into the person I am suppose to be.
