Just before thanksgiving i was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer. It started out with what was gonna be a simple lumptectomy ended up being a double masectomy. And that's exactly what I did a month ago. I still have a long road ahead of me. Chemo, radiation and reconstructive surgery. But more than anything I did not want my 25 year old son to bury his mother. At least not yet. And even though Im still in pain I know I will get through this. In the beginning I swore I would not let cancer take over my life but as we all know it does. Keep fighting ladies and know that you are not alone.
