March 8, 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Just a few months before my 31st birthday and a few months after my mom, her sister and their cousins' one year survivor anniversary. My aunt and cousin Jen are now two time survivors. It was the worst day of my life, but also changed my life for the better. I look at things differently now and a lot stronger for the battle was rough. I had a lumpectomy followed by chemotherapy and radiation. I didn't take well to the chemo and was always sick and in the hospital. On October 28, 2008, when radiation and chemo were all done and I had my check up, I went in very scared to my oncologist. It turned out to be one of the best days I have had in months. I was now completely cancer free and I plan on stayin g that way for a long time. Keep up the good fight all you beautiful women and never give up there is always hope.
