I was diagnosed with late stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2011. I had an unsuccessful lumpectomy followed by a mastectomy, Chemo and radiation. I had reconstruction and a hysterectomy in Dec of 2012. I show horses and had an awesome horse at the time. My motivation was to get back in the show arena. 3 days after radiation ended he took me to a world championship. I still have this horse along with several others. I work very hard and never seem to slow down. I totally believe this is what has kept me going for the last several years. Hormone therapy and medications have been tough on my body, but I am just a little tougher.
