The Journey 

Chasity breast cancer survivor journey

“I was 32 years old, noticed a lump and went to the doc and found out a week later I had Triple Negative Brest cancer. (Cancer does not run in my family.). I had a port within 2 weeks and started chemo the next week.  (There was no time to even think or process it, really.). Had 8 doses of chemo, which in turn lost all my hair everywhere; then surgery, and then 35 radiation treatments.  All the while I continued to work part-time and raise my family.  Made it to all the games and meeting and volunteering opportunities at school that I could. It was hard and there were days I was angry but at least I was alive to go through those days.  I still have scans every 3 months”

Motivation to fight cancer.

“My family was my motivation; I have 2 daughters that look up to me so I had to remain strong in my faith and every other aspect.  They saw me break down some but they knew “mommy was going to be ok because she’s tough stuff”

Biggest hindrance

“Not being able to go to family events like Easter or even go to church because of all the germs.  I got sick twice because I tried to go out and do the things they tell you not to.  I had a hard time resting when I was home because I am not one that can just sit and chill out very often.”

Message to other cancer patients

Chasity breast cancer survivor message to others

“You can do hard things. God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.  You never know how strong you are until there is no other option.  It was never an option for me to not survive this.  Cancer would not win.  So when days get hard, and they will, think about all the good things in your life or call a friend or a family member to just sit with you and always remember that everything will be ok, no matter the obstacle. You are strong.”
