I am a breast cancer survivor

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!
