What You Grow

Of Course it Wasn’t Cancer, I Was Only 14

Although cancer might be gone, for now, my anxiety and worry have never left. Now I am faced with a new fight, this time, not physically but mentally to live to be my best, share positivity, and appreciate the days I have without cancer.

I'm Sorry, But it's Cancer

On February 28th my doctor called me with the dreadful words, “I’m sorry, but it’s cancer.”. My whole life changed. I couldn’t understand how I got this terrible disease. I was 34 years old, with no risk factors. I never smoked, never worked anywhere with radiation or exposed chemicals, I had no family history, and when I got genetic testing done, I tested negative for 34 oncogenes.

I’m Much More Than My Conditions

It is important to be your own advocate. If you are not comfortable with your doctors, then you need to get a second opinion, even a third and fourth until you are happy with your decision. I decided that it would be best for me to take time off work, and move in with family. I chose to live with my sister who lived in Louisiana.

The Doctors Told Me I Was Too Young for Cancer

The doctors told me I was too young for cancer and since I don’t have any history of breast cancer in my family the tumor in my breast must just be dense tissue. It took several months to get my breast cancer diagnosis after I had to advocate for myself and insist on a biopsy. At the time of my diagnosis, we knew it was already in my lymph nodes but luckily it hadn’t traveled beyond that.

Brene Brown and Arnold Schwarzenegger… Are Both Right

I’m having fun exploring my humanity. Sometimes it’s pretty. Sometimes it’s pure chaos. But the further we are from the “norm” in some aspect of who we are, the more important it is to be true to it. Have fun exploring your humanity. I’ll be there cheering and supporting you on in whatever form or in any expression that is… because that is the real you.

I Am Not Defined By My Circumstances

Through my journey I discovered, I am not defined by my circumstances. It is now important for me to inspire, encourage and empower others, especially the ostomy community. I hope my story pushes others to come out of their comfort zone in sharing their story because everybody has a story to tell.

I Was Not Going to Let a Disease Take My Power Away

Sharing my personal story creates so much awareness, support, and love. We all live on Mother Earth. We all deserve to have power over our bodies, our choices, and our lives. Love your body. Love yourself. Be aware, feel the power, and bring light and love with it.

Cancer Will Not Take Over Me

I choose life. I’m going to fight to the very end to make sure I’m there for my son’s first birthday, his first steps, my wedding anniversary, my sister’s college graduation. Everything that I was planning before, is still going to be my reality later. I’m choosing to smile through my treatments in hopes to show others that if I can do it, so can you.
