Breast Cancer Story
I'm turning 40 this year. For most people this would be a source of chagrin but for me, I'm just happy that I'm still alive and I'm determined to enjoy every moment I have. In 2006, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was 36, the same age as my mom when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had my whole life ahead of me; a wonderful husband, a young daughter, a promising career and in one moment it came to a crashing halt with the words "you have cancer".
This will be my third year participating in the Weekend to End Women's Cancers. It is such an uplifting and rewarding experience that I couldn't imagine not going. I've received tremendous support and now it's my turn to give back. I walk for all those who have survived, those who have lost the fight and for my daughter so that she never has to.
