9 Years Later

October 17, 2017 3 comments

It has been a year since I have made a post in My Pink Journey. As October is breast cancer awareness month, it has become my yearly check-in with you all.

In what I have called My Pink Journey began back in 2008 when I was first diagnosed with triple positive breast cancer. 2008 was a year filled with treatment which included surgery, chemo, radiation and Herceptin maintenance for a year. It was a rough and difficult year to say the least. But the good news, I kicked cancer’s butt and have remained cancer free for 9 years now. Wow 9 years feels awesome!

The NFL has a great saying, Make a Crucial Catch regarding breast cancer. I like this slogan and it really applied to me as I found my own lump and got it checked out early. Early detection is very important so do make that appointment, have a mammogram, do self-exams, and above all, be diligent and don’t wait.

So as we wrap up October,

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is breast cancer awareness month. It is a good time to post an update about my own cancer battle. If you have been a long time reader of my blog you will know that in 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I started blogging about my cancer under what I called my pink journey. You can click on the prior link and read the old posts if you are interested in my experience.

It has been over 8 years now since cancer came a knocking on my door. In the last several years, I can finally rest easier and not have cancer on my mind at nearly every thought. I am so blessed to say that I am still cancer free and just thank God each and every day for my continued good health. So many people are not so lucky.

My heart breaks for those that are battling this beast. I grieve for those who have lost their battle and pray for comfort for their families. Cancer sucks!! I hate it and can only hope that some day there may be a cure. Can you imagine a world without cancer?
