Who I Am…

I’m a wife!

I’m a mom!

I’m a hardworking boss babe!

I’m a loyal friend!

I’m a loving daughter, granddaughter, niece and sister.

I’m also a breast cancer survivor.

NO WAIT…I’m not just a survivor I’m a THRIVER!!!

At 28 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Triple Positive Breast Cancer and have since survived chemo, bilateral mastectomy, radiation, a DIEP flap reconstruction, 1 year of Herceptin infusions, oral chemo and many other unpleasant medical procedures!

I started this blog to journal my experiences with having a career, family, social life and breast cancer. However, it’s turned into so much more then just a place for me to write down my deep, mostly humorous thoughts. It’s become a lifestyle blog. My hope and dream is that my words touch a young woman/mom, newly diagnosed with cancer or some other trauma, and that she finds solace in my words.

So this is for all of you!!
