Breast Cancer

On December 26, 2019, at the age of 42, I had my first mammogram.

A little over a week later I found myself getting the phone call that no one wants – “You have cancer.”

In addition, I started preventative measures through 4 months of Lupron shots (prior to my hysterectomy), and started Anastrazole, a hormone blocking medication (because my cancer was using hormones to grow). Anastrazole causes terrible joint pain and the need for bone density testing every couple of years. I am grateful to be alive and doing so much better than I could have ever expected.
