I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer in October 2011. I was 45 years old, with a loving husband and a sweet eight year old daughter. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, a large city with an excellent cancer centre at the local hospital.
I was shocked by my diagnosis, and for a short while completely overwhelmed. Thanks to God (literally), I was able to settle down and take a more balanced look at my future and the treatment I would receive.
Now that I have had a few months to cope with having breast cancer, I feel I have more to do to fight it off. One think I think I need to do is improve breast cancer awareness by sharing my experience. That's the point of this blog. Whether you're a friend or family member here to keep up with my progress, or a breast cancer patient looking for information, wisdom or even a laugh, I hope I can help.
