THE STORY:

Everything happens in an instant and then there is just a before and an after.  

I'm currently trying to find my footing in the after.  

Cancer crept into the picture in 2011 when my mom was diagnosed with sarcoma.  Shortly after she completed treatment my dad was diagnosed with kidney cancer and he passed away on July 4th, 2015.  Exactly 6 months later on January 4th, I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer.  While still grieving the loss of my dad I found myself in a whirlwind of treatments including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. 

Although I have completed active treatment, I think the healing process is just beginning.  I will continue with hormone therapy for the next 10 years and be closely monitored by an amazing team of doctors.  I will do everything I can to lower my risk of recurrence, but there are no guarantees so my goal is to live the best life that I can.  To live a life that I can be proud of and that my dad would be proud of.  To give back and help others as so many people have done for me in the last year.  


I believe that A Fresh Chapter is the perfect opportunity to do just that.  In March I will travel to Costa Rica to volunteer my time and energy to people in need as well as serve as a Cancer Ambassador in communities where cancer is often veiled in shame, secrecy, and stigma.  I will build new connections, gain perspective, and step outside my comfort zone to help create a ripple of good in the world.  

Cancer has changed my life, but especially my perspective on what is really important.  I've been humbled by all the support I have received in the past year from both friends and family and total strangers.  While I've never been more terrified I have also never felt so loved.
