      So glad you’re here Deborah! I don’t want to say glad you’re “still here”, that bugs me. It’s like people automatically assumed it was a death sentence, I know it’s not their fault, I just don’t like saying that for some reason lol… so, I’m glad that you’re here!
      It’s devastating isn’t it? Hearing the doctor say that you have breast cancer, the look in their eye like they are about to cry because of what they have to tell you, watching the words coming out of their mouth yet hearing nothing but silence and ringing in your ears, that’s something no one could possibly ever understand that hasn’t been through it, and I pray they never have to! It’s so hard, just so hard, yet we fight…
      I was a diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma breast cancer 2 years ago, which came with 10 months of forceful chemotherapy. It was stage 2 when they found it and I didn’t have a clue, never had any pain there were no lumps and two doctors had gave me breast exams and found nothing so needless to say I was shocked as I’m sure you felt that same feeling of shock. As if all that’s not bad enough we had to hear the doctor say that horrible sentence that you have to have a mastectomy, I was crushed as I’m sure you were. Our breasts are a big part of what makes us a woman, makes us feel like a woman and brings confidence. It took my confidence away for a long time but I’m steadily working on getting it back! We’ll never be who we were physically or especially mentally but cancer is not who we are, it’s just something that landed in our laps and we will never let that murderer win, we are fighters, strong and beautiful fighters! And I’m so sorry you had to go through that ❤️
