Hi, I am a Breast Cancer surviver. I had stage 2 in the left breast. I had a Lumpectomy, but then later I found out that I had the BRAC1 gene so my Breast Surgeon decided that I should have a Biliateral Mastectomy. I had 8 rounds of aggressive Chemo. Through all of this my husband Guillermo Trinidad would not leave my side from the moment I found the lump Till now. My husband was there sitting with me on the bathroom floor when I was sick from chemo. I was unable to wash or dress myself so my husband took on the role of my caregiver and didn't complained. When my husband had to shave my head because I lost so much hair from the Chemo I seen how hard that was for him. He was by my side at every surgery. When I lost my breast, he still showed me how much he loves me. He never made me feel less even when I hated the way I looked. My husband would surprise me with pretty cloths and sprays just to let me know that he loves me and to keep me from getting depressed. He took my role as a mom and dad for our boys. I would not be here if it wasn't for my husband being so amazing. It was hard for me, but it was also hard for my husband to see me so sick and helpless. My husband gave me the strength to keep fighting even when I felt like giving up. I love him so much and feel so grateful to have an awesome husband. I love you babe!!
