TNBC is the most difficult breast cancer to get rid of, the rate of recurrence is very high, yet if that five year anniversary can take place, these numbers fall, dramatically.
I am grateful, every day, for my journey. It hasn't been easy, it's been a tough adventure through the years. I have worked dang hard to get and stay healthy - mind, body, and spirit.
This photo isn't glamorous, in fact, I was so sick this day I could barely stand up - no hair, not even eyelashes or eyebrows. But I think it shows my stubbornness and my "I ain't down yet" attitude.
My heart is with those women and their families I've met during my journey who lost their lives to cancer, and those women who walk this hauntingly beautiful and haphazard cancer road.
I am grateful for the support I've had, and I shake my head every day in awe of this beautiful life I am living.
In six more weeks I hit my five year post-cancer mark. Dancing toward that day.
