20 Years Cancer Free - A message of hope


Hi there I hope this message is allowed. 20 years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had ducal carcinoma with one infected lymph node. I had four rounds of chemotherapy - followed by mastectomies and another four rounds of chemotherapy. Treatment was tough. I was a young mom with two little ones at home that needed me. I was scared and felt alone. I spent a lot of time on forums looking for hope.

This is a message of hope. My kids are grown now. I have had a long life after breast cancer and so will you.

My heart ❤️ is with you.
