I started this blog when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28. Writing about my experience surviving cancer helped me get through the most challenging time in my life. I hope I have also helped others be more aware of breast cancer issues, whether they are fellow patients, caregivers, doctors, or even just random people. This blog was a way for me to express the alien juxtaposition of sorrow, loss and fear that I felt with a newfound ability to truly be present, vibrant, alive and grateful. I hope others can gain from the lesson I was taught the hard way through my words and stories.
