Even the fiercest storms don’t last
Five days after a devastating miscarriage, 27 years old, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I will never forget the look on the doctor’s face after she told me it was cancer and my response was that it was okay.
I believe that this immediate acceptance of the diagnosis played a vital role in my journey. I believed that nobody else could be strong for me, but rather that I had to be strong for everyone else.
Your body listens to your mind, so I would block out all the negativity and only attract good vibes. My body had no choice but to respond positively. I immediately responded to chemotherapy, had a successful mastectomy and radiation. I had minimal pain, almost no side effects from the treatment and became a lot more spiritual.
A family member introduced me to CANSA Relay For Life and I immediately knew that CANSA Relay for Life would always be part of me. I want to create awareness and inspire other cancer patients.
I am so grateful for everyone’s constant support and I would like inspire other young moms and let them know that there is always hope, because even the fiercest storms don’t last.
