I support Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge
Susan G. Komen Virginia Blue Ridge
I would like to say that I accepted my breast cancer diagnosis with grace and strength, but at 31 years old with two little boys, I simply fell apart. That diagnosis was the beginning of a devastation that would allow me to reassess and rebuild, and to move forward into a life of daily gratitude and joy. Breast cancer connected me with survivors who I am so proud to call my friends. It pushes me to work out harder, play with my kids longer, go on more date nights with my husband, and snuggle my pets closer. When my boys ask me about my scars, I want to be able to tell them that their wives and daughters will never have to fight like this. I am so grateful for all the scientists and survivors and advocates who continue to push for better screening technology, better treatment options, and soon, a cure.
