Breast Cancer

For some, the word Breast Cancer is just another word and for others it is a battle.  From the moment you feel a lump in your breast or the moment   your mammogram results are in question, you feel a strong sense of panic.  The words, “Breast Cancer” carries on you like the weight of the world.

 

More Than a Pink Ribbon

If you have ever had a journey with Breast Cancer, you know that it is much more than a pink ribbon. Many of the women that I have spoken with had resented the pink ribbon at one point or another.

I AM

I joined a couple of cancer groups on Facebook and something rang out amid all the ailments.  This was the true sound of abandonment.  Before I continue I must say that I am sure that this rings true not only with cancer patients, but anyone with any type of ailment.  If I help just one person, then I have accomplished my goal.  Here’s how life goes.

   

The True Meaning of Love

After I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Breast Cancer, I knew my life would change.  I had no idea how drastic the changes were going to be.  It was hard because you hear different horror stories, in reality; everyone's body is different so the reaction to chemotherapy and radiation will differ.  I found this out the hard way.  Things that I expected to happen didn't.  They had the opposite effect on me.  My doctors called me "highly sensitive."

Through everything; surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, my husband was there through it all.  It was just him and I on this journey.  He cooked and cleaned, worked and brought me to some of my chemotherapy treatments, all with a supportive attitude.  He has helped me out of bed and helped me walk more times than I can possibly count.  He has been my rock.  On my weak days he listened patiently and held me as I cried.  He always told me I was the strong one.  I drew from my inner strength, but he was a great source of my strength as well.
