At 41 years old I had my first mammogram, followed by many more tests. I was diagnosed with DCIS, stage 0, breast cancer, on December 2019. I kept my diagnosis a secret, in denial that my life was about to change, the career I have worked so hard for the past 15 years will be on hold and so as many other life plans will be set aside.
In 2020 while the world was in COVID-19 lockdown. I was silently figuring out how to fight breast cancer.
I was lucky to get early detection and have my family & friends support around me.
Every diagnosis is different, some are not as lucky as me, some have no financial means for tests & procedures. This is why I fundraise.
I train, I walk, I will show my support to those who have fought, who are still fighting and for the ones like me, surviving.
Please support me as I commit to an incredible challenge. The Susan G. Komen 3-Day is a 20- 40- or 60-mile walk over the course of three days.
It will be hard, but it’s not as hard as breast cancer. It’s not as hard as chemo. It’s not as hard as getting bad news at your latest scan. It’s not as hard as saying goodbye. And that’s why I know I have to do this. That’s why I commit. That’s why I’m walking and why I’m raising money – to end breast cancer forever.
