My Cancer Journey

Updated: Sep 25, 2022

Life was moving along for me. Each and every day was going as usual, similar to the days of my friends and family. Some ups, some downs but mostly ups. When I went to see my doctor for my yearly checkup, he suggested that I go for a preventative mammogram. I thought to myself, do I really need to go for a mammogram at my age? So I left my doctor's office and made an appointment to get my mammogram.

So when the time came, I went to the appointment. What did I have to be afraid of? Nothing. I GOT THIS. I was always healthy. No cancer history in my family. But then a few days later, my life took an unexpected turn. I still remember it like it was yesterday. It was late morning, New Year's Eve 2020 when my phone rang. It was the hospital calling with my results. The nurse asked me if this was a good time to talk. I said Of Course. It was at this moment that my life changed.
