Breast cancer has given me many gifts.  I am the best person I have ever been.  I have learned that I have the strength and courage to accomplish any goal I set for myself; including earning an AA, BA, and Master’s degree…during two battles with breast cancer, a mastectomy, chemotherapy (both times), radiation, and eight separate surgeries!

Breast cancer has given me the gift of sitting with a stranger last week, while she met with her oncologist for the first time.  Breast cancer has helped to shape my career trajectory.  I have been blessed to walk through the many phases of breast cancer – diagnosis through Stage 4 through the end of life – with breast cancer survivors and their families.

Breast cancer has been a gift that has enabled me to be a gift to others.
