On Jan 13, 2003 , I got the news that I had Stage 3 breast cancer. There was no history of breast cancer in my family. I found out that this didn't make any difference. I had always been the one that helped others. Now I had to accept the help from others. This was especially hard for me, I was an independent person and needed no one's help( at least I thought). I had a lumpectomy, six months of chemotherapy and two months of radiation. I also found out that my cancer was what is categorized as Triple Negative. This breast cancer sometimes does not react to the chemotherapy like the other types. I was very lucky, mine did react to aggressive treatment well. I am now a 6 year survivor. Each new day is a special day. The support and prayers of my family and friends helped me deal with this bump in the road of my life. NEVER GIVE UP !
