Stage 2 - Metaplastic - Triple Negative (?)
Chemo treatment: A/C 4 cycles/ 2 weeks apart - Taxol every week for 12 weeks
Bilateral Mastectomy - September 21, 2012
After the shock wore off from the initial diagnosis, I vowed that I was not going to let this disease define me or own me, and I would be damned if I was going to let it take control of me. Instead, I decided to start down this path with a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
It is my hope that by sharing my story, I can find the beauty in my transformation into the new and improved me, so should the surgeries and the treatments start becoming too much, I can remember that it is all part of the journey to something better.
One of the most precious lessons I have learned is that I am a Daughter, a Niece, a Sister, a Cousin, a Wife, a Mother, and a Grandmother. ♥ I AM NOT IN THIS ALONE ♥
I know, without any doubt, that when I feel at my worst, and I feel that I can't go on, my family will always be there to help me get back up and keep going.
So now, I need to stand tall, take a deep breath, and be brave. If I want to be a Survivor, I need to become the Warrior first. And in order to do that, I need to Learn to Wear Pink.
