Dear Breast Cancer, I’m Celebrating the Wins

On August 24, 2022, at 40 years old I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was living blissfully unaware and taking “normal” for granted.

Cancer, you took what I thought defined my beauty: my breasts, my nipples, my hair and eyebrows, the brightness in my eyes. You put my body through the wringer with early menopause, sleepless nights filled with tears and anxiety, pains, diarrhea, 12 extra pounds, bloating, and depression. I’m so proud of myself for making it through a double mastectomy and six rounds of chemotherapy! I’m proud of redefining my beauty!

I win this battle and slowly take back what’s mine. But it’s not because of my strength but because God has led me through every step of the way! There are still more battles ahead but today and every chance I get I’m celebrating the wins no matter how small!

Next up: 

So thankful to God, my family, my oncology team, my church, and all of the women who share their experiences online going through their own journey and helping win every battle against cancer!
