My reason for sharing.


Hi my name is Heather I am 37 yrs old and as of this week I  am 12 months in remission from breast cancer,yay!  Ok , that sounded like a AA meeting opening LOL. This is not gonna be a gloom and doom blog about breast cancer (maybe a little wining from time to time lol). And I am not all about the must do’s and don’t of it either (however I believe you must be your own health advocate). I feel if it works for you then do it. I have learned though out this process A LOT of humor goes a long way, especially every time I go for a follow-up mammo they alway see something that turns out to be nothing. unfortunately this week was a mammo week, and YES they found something, REALLY ? This week  is my year anniversary of being in remission, I guess someone forgot to send a memo to my boob!  It is what it is, and I will soon find out what needs to be done. So here we go once again, I get felt up by everyone and anyone, my boobs didn’t get this much action in college for goodness sake lol! One of the things my father always said to me was “make sure in life you have a good sense of humor”, that was the best thing he could have said to me. So be aware at times I have a sick sense of humor. It makes me laugh and some others laugh too, so what the hell if you gonna look like shit and feel like shit, you might as well make a sick joke about it!! It was suggested to me by a few people to start this blog because in the past two years I have been to hell and back,not just with the breast cancer. So if I can make someone laugh or inspire someone that life after cancer and other things does go on, then the battle I have fought has been all worth it 🙂


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!
