As I was not at the age to yet receive mammograms, I accidentally stumbled upon my lump on my own. By this time it had already grown to 5.1cm and the cancer had entered a lymph node. I was scared I would die. Google was not being very kind. I did not know anyone else that could understand what I was going through emotionally. And that’s when I was introduced to Women Rock.
Women Rock have been my rock and hope since that day. Whether I have needed a shoulder to cry on, a ride to the doctor, financial assistance, or just a good laugh, Women Rock has been there. Getting to know all the ladies has been a highlight in my life. We are all so different, yet bonded by this horrible disease.
As of December 19th, 2016, I have been declared cancer-free! I do not know what next year or even next week will hold cancer-wise, but I would not have wanted to ever go through this without Women Rock. I will forever be grateful.
