To be thankful…



There are so many things in my life I am thankful for. First I am thankful for finding out yesterday I do not need to have another surgery! What a wonderful feeling it is to be cancer free still.  The past month has been enough to make me nuts! I will still be followed very closely but for now I am good.
I am beyond thankful for my wonderful husband Rick and my son Branden. Without their support over the past two years I don’t know what I would have done. Rick has an amazing way of making me laugh in the darkest of situations. He has a strength about him that I admire and can only hope that I too can be like that. My son has been through so much in his 12 years of life. I am so lucky to call myself his mother. He amazes me everyday with his views on things and what he plans to do as an adult. After many years of saying he wants to be an engineer he now surprised me with he wants to be a state trooper lol. He has an uncanny ability to be able to built amazing things out of kenix and programs on his computer. I love them both dearly, they are a part of me.

I am also thankful for my in-laws for welcoming us so warmly into their family. When both of your parents have pass on like mine have you feel as if your family is gone its really hard. But having my in-laws have changed all that. It is so wonderful to know that there is a family that loves you and accepts you. They have done so much for myself and Rick and for this I am truly grateful.

I am also grateful for my awesome friends who are there to support me and liston to my sick jokes. Without them I would have never found my breast cancer and would most likely be very ill today.

I have a lot again this year to be thankful for. I thank God everyday for what I have and who I am, I would not change one bit of any of it! (even the cancer)


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!
