My story is probably very similar to other women’s stories. It started with dense breasts filled with cysts, went to being diagnosed with breast cancer to surgery, to chemo therapy to remaining treatment to survivorship. Looking back, it wasn’t long but wow does it ever change your outlook on life! Now, everything means something to me! Every smile is cherished, every moment spent with loved ones is appreciated and every person in my life is treated like they are a special gift from God straight to me! So, my breast cancer taught me what is most important in life. I will not ever take anything, anyone, or any breath for granted and I will spend the rest of my time here on this planet proving that to everyone around me.
