In September of 2017, I was diagnosed with stage 2b breast cancer. I was told that I would need chemo, a mastectomy, radiation, and possibly another round of chemo to beat it. While meeting and beating every battle that was thrown my way, I was also assisting in caring for my mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer several months before my diagnosis and I was emotionally assisting my sister who was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of months after my diagnosis all in the same year. I lost my mother and a friend who were both fighting their own battle with breast cancer while I was fighting mine. Due to the effects of chemo, I had to resign from my position that I held at a small law firm two months after I began treatment. Thanks to Women Rock my family was able to stay afloat while I fought the hardest battle of my life.
