7 Years Breast Cancer Survivor
On Sept 1, 2009 at the age of 36, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. My husband, Sheldon, and I had two young boys at the time. Corbin was 5 and Chase was 3. Cancer doesn’t just change your life but the lives of everyone you love. And its effects don’t end on your last day of treatment – they last a lifetime. My cancer was aggressive and invasive. I needed a mastectomy, 6 rounds of chemotherapy, and 36 radiation treatments before I entered the never-ending “wait and see” phase. I’m grateful for the love and support my family receives daily, and we are so blessed to be graced by another miracle – our 3rd son, Crewe was born June 9, 2014.
