THE STORY:

On November 19, 2015 my world was turned upside down.  I was always a very active person.  I was either at the gym working out or running my three boys around to their various events.  I ate organic fruits and vegetables (LOTS of vegetables) and very little meat.  I was also an avid runner.  I ran my first marathon in 2015 in Chicago.  Just a few weeks after completing the marathon I discovered a lump in my breast.  I didn't think much of it and figured it would just go away.  A couple weeks later the lump remained and with the constant nagging of my husband to go to the doctor I agreed.  

With my excellent health and lack of family history, no one suspected cancer.  I thank God everyday my doctor (and the radiologist) had enough sense to run more tests and conduct a biopsy.  On November 19, 2015 I heard the words I thought I would never hear, "You have cancer."

I made the choice to tackle my diagnosis head on.  I completed 6 rounds of chemotherapy and had a double mastectomy.  Chemotherapy is the worst thing I have ever had to go through and I do not wish it on my worst enemy.  I hope one day that no woman will ever have to go through what I went through.

I learned a lot about breast cancer this past year.  I want to help other women learn about breast cancer prevention and early detection.  I have teamed up with Bright Pink to raise money to spread awareness on this horrible disease.  Please consider donating and helping me reach my goal.
