chemobrainandmore

Bio: 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!

    • Hi! I am sorry it took me a while to get back to you, I just went back to work and I dont know if I am coming or going. I hope your journey with this is good. Its such a strange expeience, I have had two friends that had their both of their mastectomies right after I did and each one of us have had different results. One of them a year later is still having surgeries, the other one finished with treatment. And me, well I have 3-4 more surgeries to go. They dont tell you get into this how much fine tuning there is to do!! I am holding off possible until Jan to do my next surgery. I dont know if its fat grafting or a lift (ive lost 53 lbs since the masectomy). I hope you are also doing well! It is nice to have someone to talk to about this! Thanks for checking my blog out, I am def going to read yours 🙂
