I am a breast cancer survivor.
People disagree on when one should be considered a survivor.
On October 3, 2016 I received the official diagnosis of Stage 111C, Estrogen Positive Breast Cancer and that was the day that I considered myself to be a survivor! From the first moment I decided that I would do everything in my power to fight that thing that had invaded my body-I WAS A SURVIVOR!
Hope is the belief that a positive outcome lies ahead.
There have been moments since my diagnosis where I found it difficult to feel hopeful. Thankfully those moments have been few and far between.
I thought I would share some things that helped renew my hope on those occasions that I was floundering. I'm hoping that perhaps someone else out there will find some of these tips useful in their journey.

Please click on the button below to check out my GoFundMe page. I am now without health insurance and struggling to continue getting the treatments needed to continue this fight.
Over this past year I completed chemotherapy, and 33 radiation treatments. I also had a modified radical mastectomy.
I am now considered by my doctor to be cancer-free!
Due to the amount of cancer in my lymph nodes that were removed I am high risk for a recurrence. Therefore I have decided to do everything in my power to lesson that risk!
