In 2022, I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. It was caught early and had not spread. After a lumpectomy and radiation, I was cancer free and I walked in the More Than Pink Walk as a survivor. My friend Christy, also a survivor, and I led our team, Brasecutors Against Cancer in which hopefully will be an annual tradition in doing what we can in the fight against breast cancer.
Last July, I was shocked to find out that I had breast cancer again, in the other breast. It was again caught early and very treatable, but I had to make the difficult decision -- another lumpectomy or bilateral mastectomy. I decided to cut off the cancer makers and am now just over three weeks post surgery and healing well. I plan to walk with my team Brasecutors Against Cancer on November 5th and show everyone that cancer won't get me down!
