If you came from Vera's blog, you are in the right place! If not, head back to Chaitali's blog and start there.
A few random facts that I learned along my journey.
- Cancer does hurt. Yes, my lump caused me so much pain and discomfort, it was the reason I decided to go in.
- Cancer doesn't wait for you to be 40. I kept thinking, I'm too young for cancer.
- I had Triple Negative Breast Cancer, the most aggressive type. There is no targeted therapy for TNBC, leaving it to have the highest rates of reoccurrence, and primarily targeting women under 40, and African American Women. Again, EARLY DETECTION is the key here.
- Bald isn't so bad, WAY less time in the morning getting ready. (Although chilly when it's winter!) But I don't want to have to do it again. ;)
- Reconstruction isn't easy or fun. No, I'm not "lucky'' I have these fake ones. I might have NOT done it had I known just how involved it was.
- Laughter will carry you far while battling this disease.
- Learn to ask for help. Take help. Don't be a hero trying to do it all.
- Lastly, ditch Dr. Google. He has the WORST advice when you are first going through it all.
On to my card. :)
I was able to use the very set that Chaitali designed Pink Power, for my project today. She designed the set for her mom with a lot of love when her mom was undergoing treatment.
Next Stop on the hop is Julee's blog, and at the end head back on over to Chaitali's blog for a giveaway! :)
Thanks Chaitali for including me on this hop! Pin It Now!
