I am happy that it was me that got Cancer



I am still waiting on my CBC results and still have a low grade fever. I feel that over the past three years fighting the big C God chose this path for me. Not because I need to have more crap in my life( I meant really who ever wants a monkey wrech thrown into lifes plan). But I was chosen to bear these things,  because I am the strongest of the strong. Most people would have crumbled after loosing a parent three months before your wedding. Or having emergency surgery for an ectopic pregnancy three months after being married. Or yet a breast cancer diagnosis a year after being married and being told I now can never carry another child! Or even better, after all the chemotherapy and radiation having three more biopsys and total hysterectomy! And then the icing on the cake, a bilateral mastectomy!

I would not change my life one bit. All of it has shaped myself and my family. It has taught my son be strong when the going gets tough. It has also shown him the gift of giving to others when I do my Strides walk. He is proud of me and my fight ,and in turn I am proud of him for how well, as a child he has taken all this in and made him stop and think about things.

No…I wouldn’t change this journey one bit, because it would change who I have become. And right now I am pretty damn happy with who I am ,boobs or not!


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!
