A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

Tell Me Your Story #4

LupineDear Marie,

Hello! I was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer on 11-11-11 (how’s that for a date to remember?!). I was 35 years old at the time. My mother passed from breast cancer at 36. It probably goes without saying that she passed it on to me, most likely. I went aggressive. Double mastectomy, radiation, and a total hysterectomy. I pushed through like a bull, working full time all the while. I am very happy to say that I am almost 4 years cancer free!! It has been said that those that have been through hell and survived find that nothing much bothers them after that. That is me.

This is not a very funny story, but I thought I would share. Keep the faith. You are not alone in this battle!!!

  1. Your bravery gives me courage tonight as I face surgery tomorrow. To lose your mother so young and bull through all you did takes fortitude that I will hold in my heart. Thank you for sharing.💖

    1. Gerry,

      I hope that your surgery was a complete success. I would love to hear your story as well.

      I agree: I don’t know Jamie personally, but she is very brave to have gone through everything she has gone through.

      I wish you all of the best in your own journey.

      -Marie
