Now that I’ve healed from my final breast cancer surgery, I truly feel like a survivor. I even ditched my post chemo grey hair for a new look on Tuesday. Yes, it’s still short but it’s brown with blond highlights and suits me much better than grey.
I knew with my last surgery that I wanted to stop using Caringbridge but I also knew that I wanted to continue sharing my thoughts and news–less about me and more about cancer. I have a personal mission to help with every aspect of this disease. I want to help women deal with a diagnosis they never want to get and provide them with ongoing support to get through some difficult times. I want to help raise money to put an end to this disease. I want to participate in any research trials that will provide information to lead to better treatments. I want to raise awareness about the BRCA gene so that at risk women are equipped with the right information.
This blog provides me an opportunity to do that and more. I hope you will join me as I journey through life as a breast cancer survivor!
