    Celebration (Anniversary): Each year, I celebrate being a breast cancer survivor by attending walks, speaking engagements, and mentoring other women going through treatment as well.

    Radiation (External radiation ): In the beginning, the radiation treatments were tolerable but after 5 weeks of daily treatments, I started to burned and my energy level started to decrease as well. Overall, the radiation treatments are not bad but the goal is to get a lot of rest and eat before your treatments.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): The surgery was simple and lasted about 3 hours. The recovery process was very easy.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): This was my first response to the diagnosis when the doctor provided the information. During this time, I was out of work and I was diagnosed on Feb. 23rd and my insurance ended on Feb. 28th. At this moment, I needed a biopsy, surgery, and radiation with 3 days left with insurance. After three days of being in shock, I called my old employer and told them about my current situation and I was hired as a contractor. My insurance was reinstated immediately, and I had surgery on March 13th. God is so good!!
