I believe that as a survivor, I'm here to help other survivors let other survivors know that they can make it through.
I have a family that’s with me all the way. As I walk through my treatment, they walk with me.
It’s amazing how much laughter can happen in an oncology department, but we’ve got such a great team at Touro.
The mental health part of this is what I don’t think people realize, especially the after part.
Breast cancer, while you're pregnant, can be very aggressive. My pregnancy was feeding my cancer.
I really feel like my cancer was for a reason, it may be I need to be the voice for future generations.
I'm now a survivor who looks at others and goes "You can make it".
I'm more than a survivor. I'm in for the long haul and I feel like I'm going to do this and there's no stopping me.
