In August 2014 I started experiencing on and off leaking from my right nipple. It was only happening about once or twice a month. My sister, Morgan was pushing me to go to the doctor but of course I was putting it off. During those 6 months, my husband, Danny and I were trying to get pregnant but were unsuccessful.
Many of you might remember last month when Mindy posted a picture of herself bearing her chest and Stripes (scars) of what cancer looks like. The picture was taken on her last day of radiation and she posted it immediately to her Facebook page so that she could show the world what cancer looks like and to tell her story of faith and positivity.
At the age of 29, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I found a lump in my breast seven months before I was diagnosed. I was taking off my sports bra and I noticed a lump the size of an eyeball in my left breast, so I called and set an appointment.
Within only five days I lost two loved ones. My aunt Pepper was diagnosed with breast cancer around five years ago. After multiple rounds of chemotherapy and other procedures Pepper went into remission. A few years passed and she felt some pain in her leg. When she went to the Dr. they told her that it was stage-4 breast cancer.
We love being active! There was a time during Mindy’s cancer battle that she couldn’t do any sports, or physical fitness activities, even something as simple as swimming…(which is the end of the world when Mindy can’t swim).
Fire Station 5 Driving PINK for Awareness
Today was bittersweet. Fire Station 5 in Fullerton now has a new meaning to me. I went to the Station just thinking this was going to be an awesome experience. You know?…sign the truck, take a picture, and leave. Little did I know the impact it was going to have on this Blog and me.
