Survivor, Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (Breast Cancer)
Twist on Cancer: At 35, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Life has never been the same past that call. The call where my doctor’s office told me “I’m sorry, but you have cancer.” And although I will never be the same person that I was before that, maybe I can be better? Breast Cancer has taught me to slow down, to enjoy my life, to enjoy my family…one moment at a time.
Breast Cancer brought tears, sleepless nights, pain, sadness, sickness, and so much uncertainty to my life. It was terrible.
But you know what? It was also really good and I learned a lot from it. I have learned that I have an amazing support system filled with the best friends and family a girl can ask for. I have learned what is important to me, and what is not. I have learned that life is short and can change at any second. I have learned to cherish every second with my kids as they grow older. And I have learned that as hard as it can be at times, my life is amazing. And I am so thankful to still be here living it.
