On February 9, 2017, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and was told that this was "The First Day of the Rest of My Life" Four days later my biopsy showed that I have Triple Negative Breast Cancer; this is a non-hormonal breast cancer. After much reflection, (and a talk with self) I made the decision to accept God's plan and what lied ahead and told my family that "I GOT THIS!" In March, I underwent surgery at The Cleveland Clinic which was very successful and I was given a very good diagnosis and outcome! I am currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy at TCC to kill my cells and prevent the spreading of this terrible disease. After the 16 treatments over 20 weeks I will start radiation every day for 6 weeks to 'clean up my site'. It has been a long journey so far, but I KNOW I will continue to be a SURVIVOR because I GOT THIS!!
I THANK ALL my family, friends, doctors, nurses and all those whose paths I have crossed in 'My Journey' for the support, prayers and encouragement that has been shown to me these past 7 months.
