:o Hi Ladies - this is my first time here - I was wondering if anyone would like to share their stories about their own experiances with breast cancer. Each experiance is so very unique, no 2 are the same. Speaking for myself, I find it very comforting to talk and chat with other women who belong to this very elite club of ours (tho not by choice!).
I was a 5 day a week at the gym girl, felt healthy, very strong and fit......I never got sick and seldom had to see a doctor.
BUT - I lost my left breast last March, after turning 43. I presented to my doctor a very abnormal looking boob in late February, and off it came on March 8th. I have been to ***l and back in the past year, every time I go for an x-ray or MRI or ct scan or bone scan or bloodwork it just reminds me that my life has changed now, drastically - but thanks to God, and family and friends, perserverance, and some really good drugs lol - I am very much at peace with where I am in my journey. Have been married for 22 years to an amazing man and have three wonderful daughters, the youngest being just 12.
My maternal grandmother had breast cancer - which I did know until recently. And I just lost my sister to colon cancer. What is going on? It seems to me we are in the midst of a cancer epidemic~!
I have learned more about myself and the world in the past year than in the past twenty years. I have learned exactly who I am, why I am here. I fear NOTHING now. I give thanks for every day I am here, and take not one breath for granted. I smell the flowers, and hug my kids, and smile all the time - because I know now how incredibly precious life is, and am so grateful for every day I am still here.
