On Friday September 14th, at 3:45pm. I anxiously received the news. Who would have thought that I, only 24 years old with my entire life a head of me would be diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer (triple positive ductal carcinoma). Im in shock the doctors are in shock. Im told that I will be the youngest breast cancer patient that my oncologist is now treating. Its questionable that how can I, being considered an average healthy individual with a family history of cancer, but not breast cancer will be fighting this battle. I've been told and I do believe, God sends the toughest situations to the strongest individuals who can over come a challenge and convert it into a life changing success for either myself or others.
My intentions is for my story and my journey to go viral. Not for fame or publicity, but for advocating and educating that with cancer there is not age of diagnosis. Women should be aware and caution with any changes that is occurring within their body. For exams and diagnostics to be performed at a much younger age and not wait until reaching 40s or 50s. Please dont wait and get examine. Our health is precious and becomes much more valuable in not knowing what will happen.
I will be out of work for the next several months due to treatment (5 months of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation). Due to my work status, I'll be responsible to pay monthly premiums to be covered under my insurance.
Please friends and family, any help will truly be appreciated. May God bless you all with health, love, and happiness.
