“Over Columbus Day weekend, unable to get comfortable in bed, I had my left arm draped over my chest. That’s when I found the lump. I’m 38 years old, no history of anything in my family and healthy… I ran the Boston Marathon in 2011 fundraising for Mass Eye and Ear. Even though everyone kept telling me that biopsies were common, I knew what it was the day I first felt the lump. That night when my boyfriend asked what would happen, my answer was, “I’ll call my doctor on Tuesday and see her this week. She’ll send me for a mammogram and ultrasound. Then I’ll have a biopsy and then I’ll see a specialist.” On Monday, October 29th my office was closed for Hurricane Sandy and lucky I was home that day when my doctor called with the results of my biopsy. I have breast cancer.
Although I have no close relatives with breast cancer, I tested positive for the breast cancer gene. Because of that, I am having a bilateral mastectomy which is scheduled for January 10th. The first of my 8 chemo treatments will start up in early to mid February. They told me I will lose my hair within two weeks of the first treatment.
I know I will get through this and past this. I know eventually I will be fine and cancer free. Every day has brought new struggles from fertility preservation, insurance issues, breast reconstruction and the biggest… the thought of losing my hair.
This Sunday I’m getting my hair chopped off short, before surgery… I already was planning on cutting it before chemo started, but it just makes sense to do it now.
I’ve been trying to stay as positive as I can during all of this. My boyfriend has been absolutely amazing and he has been my rock during all of this. I’m so lucky to have such a supportive circle of friends and family to help me as well. Even work has been great during all of this. I’m lucky for all of that. My doctors are amazing. I’m finding humor wherever I can, even laughing when I went wig shopping with a good friend. People take their lead from me. If I show strength and courage, they follow that and feel better and more positive about what I’m going through. And that attitude from others will continue to help me get through this as times get more difficult through treatment.
The reason I decided to enter this now is to have a reminder of who I am before my surgery. Even though I still have this growing tumor inside of me, I’m strong, happy, positive and I intend to kick cancers *SS! I have found courage and strength I didn’t know I had. When I’m struggling through chemo and feeling miserable, I want a reminder of me looking happy, beautiful and sexy…”
