In April 2007 I had a double mascetomy due to breast cancer. I thought I would never survive the surgery, chemo, etc. But, here I am today a survivor of 2 years. I celebrate each day and appreciate every day. My goal in life now is to help other women who are facing this terrible disease. I try to tell women ,that I am referred to, all the little things that will change in their lives and ways to make the transition easier. I am thankful that the Lord has led me through this disease and has carried me all the way through some tough decisions.
My mother, also, had breast cancer and past away at 57 years of age. I encourage all women with the disease to have genetic testing done for their daughters, sisters and other family members.
Cancer truly changes your life and sometimes for the better.
I am a SURVIVOR.
