Welcome to my More Than Pink page!
I have participated in many breast cancer walks, including two 3-day walks. This year's event has a new meaning for me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last November. Even though my cancer was caught "early", it has been a rough road. I had a mastectomy in November from which I found out I had an aggressive form of cancer. That finding resulted in undergoing chemotherapy treatments from December until March. I also tested positive for the BRCA1 gene mutation which leads to another mastectomy in a week, as well as an oophorectomy this summer (both as preventative measures). That is what catching it "early" looked like for me. Something I could have never imagined happening.
I sincerely feel that the surgical, medical, and treatment options we have today wouldn’t exist without the hard work and research provided by the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Please consider making a donation to support ongoing research to not only provide better treatment options but to someday find a cure for breast cancer.
Thank you for your support. It means the world to me 😊
