There really is no easy way or right time to say “I have breast cancer”. My doctor confirmed my pathology / biopsy results were positive for breast cancer on Thursday, November 17th. I wanted to keep it a secret for awhile, but as with other life altering situations that have happened in the last year and a half, I decided to share my story to provide strength and encouragement to other women who are going through painful situations. I plan to document my journey through breast cancer diagnosis and treatment so that I can bring awareness to the disease and hopefully provide strength and comfort to other women.
My journey with breast cancer started less than 6 weeks ago when I discovered a lump in my breast while driving across country moving my mother to California from Indiana. We made a stop in Texas to visit my stepsister. A day I will never forget. I will share my story beginning from that day in my next post. I look forward to hearing your story as well. Until then….
