On November 30 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My journey actually started October 30, when I discovered the lump in my breast and I knew that it was cancer. After a month of doctors visits, mammograms, and a biopsy the day before Thanksgiving, it was confirmed. For some reason I was never afraid or worried I knew in my gut that I would be ok! By the grace of God, I was. My cancer was stage 1, and completing treatable with surgery to removal of the nipple and areola (where the tumor sat), 4 weeks of radiation! I have to say I am a lucky lady, my journey ended on March 13, for the most part. Sometimes I forget that I had cancer, I feel guilty to say I am I breast cancer survivor, there are so many real warriors fighting this everyday, I am not worthy. For that reason I would like to walk in the More than Pink walk, to stand side by side with brave women who fight and to honor those that are not with us today because of this monster. I want to spread the message of early detection, it may of saved my life or a least made my journey easy peasy, as I like to say. So let's join together as my ass kicking sisters and raise money so that those that the lost the battle and those that fight today will not have done it in vain.
