February 25, 2015: My mom got the diagnosis: Stage 1 Lobular Carcinoma (breast cancer)
She opted for a bilateral masectomy (due to the lengthy list of cancer in the family tree). That was the best decision she could have made-- the pathology report showed that there were pre-cancerous cells in her other breast.
In November 2015 I participated in my FIRST Susan G. Komen 3-Day in Dallas/Fort Worth. I found strength in knowing that those 60 miles were NOTHING compared to what she went through (emotions, pain, fear, surgeries and post op care). I've walked every November since then!
Over the past 3 years, we (all of my wonderful donors) have raised OVER $9,000.
I have added others to the list of whom I'm walking for. Some I know personally, others just through connections. I am dedicating each mile I walk to someone who is going through treatment, has passed or is a survivor.
Thank you so much for your support, I truly can not thank you enough.
