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!

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!

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.
