“When the doctor told me I had breast cancer, the first thought that rushed to my mind was ‘how is this possible?’ My mother’s cancer had just relapsed and now she had a daughter with breast cancer. I am an only child and was basically her caregiver, so I knew I had to move forward.
I had been around cancer patients my whole life and had done research for my job. I was a pharmaceutical sales rep, so I was lucky because I knew I had resources and understood what was happening to me.
I know there is a lot of fear when you are diagnosed with cancer and you are not familiar with the disease. You have to get as much information as possible, move forward and put a plan together to beat it!”
