In my case, I've been lucky to have the support of my mother, who is no stranger to cancer. She was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphona back in 2017.
After six chemo treatments and two years of immunotherapy, she is now cancer free. She feels like she is not only cancer free in her body, but also her mind and soul. I tried to support her as much as possile, but I don't think that I was able to really process it. I was devastated to know that my mother had cancer. So, when I went through it, she took care of me, and helped me feel like I could beat this too. Now I'm cancerfree in my body, mind and soul, like her. Without her strength, support, and care, I would not have been able to process my own cancer diagnosis.
She and other wonderful friends, including the Misses Kisses team, have shown me how to stay strong and fight through everything. I am so grateful for my friends at Misses Kisses because they have given people the opportunity to donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foudnation, raising over $48,000. With your support, we can continue to find a cure for breast cancer and help many other people going through this disease.
I am very grateful to share my story in hopes that it will encourage others to share their experiences as well.
Reminder that you are not alone.
There are many support groups out there that can help get you thruogh this. If you need support, you can visit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation at http://www.bcrf.org for resources on what you may need.
Be well and happy! Take care of yourselves and get your mammograms!
