Fourteen years ago today I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Breastcancer.org was my lifeline throughout my treatment and reconstruction. I learned so much from those with the same diagnosis, the same chemo regime, and the same reconstruction. Today I recommend breastcancer.org to those who are newly diagnosed. I come back once a year, on or near the date of my diagnosis to offer encouragement to others. Life is good. The only lingering affect of treatment is the neuropathy in my toes. Treatments have changed a lot in the last 14 years. There are going to be a lot more long-term survivors in the future. The thing I worry about most now is COVID-19, not breast cancer. Next year I get to move up to the 15+ group. Stay strong and go wash your hands.
