Hi, everyone. I just wanted to talk with
you all today a little bit more
personally about my breast cancer, diagnosis. I was diagnosed in March of
2016. I found out two days before my
younger son made three years old. I found
a lump and I went to have a mammogram, and the doctors pulled me out of the
mammogram and they said they were 98% sure that what they saw was cancer. So,
within the time of a few weeks I was
scheduled and had surgery. I had a double
mastectomy and reconstructive surgery,and everything went really well. And
after that I went to see an oncologist,
and she ran a PET scan on me and PET
scan came back and the lesions that they
saw were in my spine, and she said they
were suspect of cancer so she wanted to do a biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. So
I went through a biopsy and it came back
as positive for breast cancer, and so
from there I didn’t really know what I was going to do.
I just through all of it kept thinking to myself in the beginning, oh, my gosh, hurry
up, I just want this all to be over with so
had other plans for me because I didn’t
get back to my normal life. I had all
kinds of other things you have to think about,
and so I started thinking what can I do?
Doctors do their thing, what can I do?
What are some things that I can change
for myself that are healthy? And so, I started looking at diet and exercise and
spirituality, and my diet became really important and I changed a bunch of
things, and I started exercising and
going to a different church. And so, I
just really want to share some of these things with you, and so I hope you stay
tuned for next time.
