I found out on April 15th(yes tax day) 2010 that I had breast cancer. I had my surgery on May 13th and was told that it had spread to a lympnode but only 1 of the 10 that was removed. I had 6 chemo treatments, lost my hair after the 2nd treatment and then had 33 treatments of radiation. Thoughout all of this I fought harder than I have ever fought and placed it in God's hands to see me through.

This is why I am here 2 years later as a SURVIVOR. I have met a lot of people that have fought the same battle as I have and have gotten very involved with raising money to help others that will go though this horrible disease. I did not ask for cancer but when I was told I had it, it made me realize that I was strong and could beat this and if you are reading this and think you cannot make it, believe me you can.

I have great doctors that were there and gave me the best treatment. I cannot thank my doctors, family and my friends for being there pushing me every step of the way. I will be doing the cancer walk in my town this October with my teammates to raise money to help others and it is so rewarding to do this each year.
