My journey

My mom was diagnosed twice in the last 10 years. She is doing great. So when I found the lump in my breast I was scared and just knew that something was wrong. With the help of my wonderful doctors we moved very quickly. I have made it through chemo and only a week left of radiation.

The hardest part of my journey

Worrying about my mom. She is so worried about me and I want her to know that I am ok and will continue to be ok.

If I could do it over again

No

My participation with FORCE

Yes. I have read several of the suvivor stories online which have inspired me to continue my fight.
