Daily Digest for October 11, 2013

It’s hard to believe that this time two years ago, I was preparing to go into the hospital for my mastectomy.  It had been an overwhelming and scary 6 months since I had been first diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer in April, 2011.  My life was turned upside down and things haven’t been the same since.  Sometimes, all that seems like a lifetime away, and other times it feels like only yesterday.  On October 19th, 2011,  I had a modified radical mastectomy and had over 20 lymph nodes removed.  A few days later, my Oncologist called to tell me I was officially cancer free.  As I look back, I am so grateful to have made it through and for the lessons I have learned.  October is national Breast Cancer awareness month, but for me it will always be even more significant, because it’s the month that I beat cancer and was blessed with a second chance at life.
