Three years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer in the right breast. After much investigation, I decided to do a double mastectomy, which was followed by radiation and 1 years of chemotherapy. This journey was not easy and filled with many low points.
I have decided to make the best of this journey. I choose to be better for it. I am going to live my life to the fullest. Life is too short to hide under a bushel. So I have decided to LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH. It is my time to shine and I’m living LOUD!
Through my experience I have realized despite the many support systems for breast cancer, there was a need for more personal intimate support. Someone to physically hold your hand listen to you, and not just put you through the decision stages like a machine or just provide promotional items.
I now want to be there for someone who need the physical emotional support and I want to tell someone that if I made it through, You can also. Hence the UWA Breast Cancer Foundation.
