On January 10, 2018 my middle child turned four. That afternoon I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My children were 6, 4, and 18 months at the time. I battled six months of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, preventive hysterectomy, and exchange surgery. Throughout every single round of chemo I wore a pair of silver glitter shoes. I wore them as a constant reminder to find the happiness in every moment and to make me and the ones around me smile. The support I received from my community was amazing and I want to make sure that others do as well.
