ONLY SEVEN DAYS TO ACS STRIDES!! Will you help me make my goal??


YES I am going to be a pain in the ass about this!!! So I am reposting this important blog.

I am so passionate about ACS and what they do for breast cancer. Sadly I am no where near my goal, but that’s ok! I did just have a mastectomy a few weeks ago so I don’t have my usual ways of fund raising.

If you can find it in your heart and in your wallet to donate ANYTHING it would be greatly appreciated!! As always pass along my information!!

The more money we raise, the more lives we can save!


I hope everyone is feeling a little generous! Please check out my link to my personal American Cancer Society Making Strides to end Breast Cancer fund raising page. I wont be able to walk due to my condition but that wont stop me from exceeding the amount I raised last year!! So if you can find it in you heart(and your pocket lol) and show your support by making a donation. And if you do, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!! And if you are unable to know I appreciate the thought!


Because I know I will make a difference in the fight to end breast cancer. I know that by raising funds and walking in the American
Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event I will help
save lives from breast cancer. Last year I was thrilled to make Pacesetter status by raising over $2600 and that was my first year participating!

I believe that one day breast cancer will never steal another year from anyone’s life like it had done to me. Making Strides is not only my opportunity to join my community to fight back against breast cancer but it is also a way to inspire hope by raising funds and awareness to help those facing
the disease like myself.


My reason for walking in the Making Strides event is personal – just
like every other walker’s story. As many of you know I was diagnosed
almost three years ago with stage II A breast cancer at age 36 after
being married for only a year. I had a lumpectomy, four rounds of chemo, 33 rounds of radiation ,four more breast biopsy’s, a total hysterectomy and just six weeks ago I had a bilateral mastectomy. All because of Breast cancer!! It has been a very hard and long journey!!!!

We need to find a cure so no more days are taken away from people like myself by this horrible disease!!




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!
