This may be a little off topic, but October is a Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a 21-year survivor, it is important to me to remind people that it can happen to you. I didn’t think it could happen to me. Shows me what I got for thinking.
I worry that there are women who find something and are too afraid of finding cancer to have it checked out. Take it from me, it’s far better to find it early when the treatments are so much easier on you than waiting until it’s too late. The good news these days the treatments are so much easier than they were when I went through it. With all the genetic testing, doctors can tell exactly which gene is causing the problem and aim the right cure directly to it. In my case, I got everything but the kitchen sink. Still, I’m here to talk about it and that’s what matters.
I wrote a fictionalized version of what I went through in my book A DIFFERENT KIND OF BEAUTIFUL, which is still available on Amazon. If you’re curious, check it out.
