As I reflect over the past ten years, the fact that I triumphed over breast cancer has encouraged me to live my life with a new found zest. I try to focus on the positive aspects of life, and have deliberately chosen not to remember all the details of my breast cancer journey.
I discovered a mass in my right breast at the worst of times; I was on vacation in Mexico with my daughter Ana Maria. I remember waking up, walking to the balcony in our room and feeling a lot of pain in my breast. Since we were on vacation, and because I did not want to ruin my daughter’s enjoyment, I tried to ignore the pain and continue with our day’s plan.
In June 2012, I went in for my yearly mammogram and the results showed everything was normal. Later that year, I casually ran my hand across my right breast, and felt a lump. The very next morning I scheduled an appointment with my doctor.
If I had to use 2 words to describe myself before my diagnosis, it would have been: independent and feminine. After my diagnosis, at the age of 35, I felt weak. My doctors recommended a double mastectomy and six months of chemotherapy. I would lose my hair and my breasts.
was diagnosed with Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer in 2015. From the time of my diagnosis, I learned to have greater faith.
I discovered a hard mass in my right breast while performing a monthly self-awareness exam. My findings were strange and I was immediately frightened. I was stunned, but when I finally came to, I instinctively knew to pick up the phone to call my mom.
