OUR Story

This year, I registered for the Komen Race for the Cure because I wanted to take action and be More Than Pink

So, let's be real, you all know I hate pink, but this is the color assigned, this ugly monster...So, let's be More Than Pink together!  

I had my mammogram November 19th, and was diagnosed with breast cancer December 14th.  We found out it was Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, positive for all 3 receptors December 26th, and we were diagnosed we were Stage 3, January 14th.  It has been a trying road since.  We started our first round of chemo February 1st.  (Hey, at least it's an easy day to remember!)  There have been reactions, one-in-a-million chance things that have happened, and irritating side-effects, but through it all I have had Amazing champions!

You guys have caught me when I have fallen into pity/disparity.  You guys have encouraged me when I felt down.  You guys have assured me when I have felt less than human.  And you have comforted me when I have cried (Because we all know, I don't handle that sh** well.)

We have finished the first round of chemo, and I had my mastectomy.  There will still be radiation, more infusions, and more surgeries, but we are undoubtedly through the worst!

Now, I would love for us all to come together to celebrate coming out the other side!  

You may have noticed I have said "we" since my diagnosis.  That is because WE have all gone through this together, and I couldn't have done it without you ALL!

Through everything, I have constantly thought about those that don't have the financial ability or unconditional support from friends and family.  Those are the one's I want to support.  Let's join together... Celebrate life, strength, and love, and do something to help others!
