Fear of the name.
In some parts of the world, people are afraid to mention the word ‘cancer’. To some folks, the word cancer is synonymous to a death sentence. Some just call it ‘The C’. Cancer is a league on its own amongst diseases.
On February 14, 2017 I was diagnosed with an invasive form of breast cancer. Like I jokingly tell folks, Cupid shot me the cancer arrow. Today, I stand to tell you with all confidence that I no longer have evidence of the disease.
Cancer should never be a death sentence. It should not evoke fear. I have made it a life long mission to join those that have gone ahead of me to lift the veil shrouding this disease. I will be sharing my survival story to encourage those in similar fate. I will be providing tips for thriving during treatment. I would also be dishing out lessons life has taught me. Sit back, grab your popcorn, trail mix, etc. Enjoy!
