Five and a half years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Even after 10 breast cancer surgeries and eight rounds of chemo, I sometimes think it was a gift from God. Now I give the “Gift of Survivorship,” knowledge and empowerment to breast cancer families, and in return, they have given me more than I ever dreamed possible.
When they need one another most, I’m able to help families stay intact and find their “new normal” after treatment. How great is that? I’ve launched the BreastCancerSisterhood.com, produced over 100 original videos for each member of the breast cancer family, been named a Top 10 Breast Cancer Blog on the Internet, and have written two soon-to-be published books, one for newly diagnosed patients and one for husbands and caregivers.
And the best part? I’m married to an amazing man who values me with his whole heart.
