On June 1, 2015 I was diagnosed with Invasive ductal carcinoma stage 2A.

At 48 years old I was in shock, I couldn't have breast cancer I'm to young, but it was true I did have breast cancer.

I elected to have a bilateral mastectomy which was performed on June 6, 2015.

I was then introduced to chemo on July 15, 2015, through continued chemo treatments I lost all of my hair and I thought let's have some fun with this. The picture above shows me as a baby and then what I look like now. Then and Now.

I still have a long road ahead of me on this journey and will fight my hardest as I move through it.
