Hi there. When I was 41-years-old,I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have three kiddos and at the time of my diagnosis, Marissa was seven, Josh was 5 and Ethan was two. I truly believe that cancer has been a blessing. I have learned so much about myself and about what is truly important in life. I love the three beautiful faces you see in the picture above more than you will ever know. They have my heart and I am so proud to be their mom.
As of today, March 25, 2017, I am still in active treatment and see my oncologist every three months. After my last appointment, I graduated to every four months. When people ask me if I’m in remission, I don’t really know what that means. My doctors won’t say anything other than “Active Treatment”. I prefer to use the term NED (No Evidence of Disease). I am constantly worried about recurrence.
