When I found out I had Cancer and was going to have my first surgery ever at age 45 I was terrified! I did not want to pass that feeling of fear on to my family and friends so I borrowed the PINKALICIOUS logo from the book of the same name. I had bilateral stage 0, grade 2 DCIS. I had two lumpectomy surgeries. December 6th 2012 on my 45th birthday and follow up for cleaner margins in January of 2013. Followed up by 6 weeks of radiation and 5 years of Tamoxifen. I have will be Cancer Free for 6 years in December 2019 and as of May drug free. Waiting to be hot flash free!
Today I represent the character from Pinkalicious and the color pink to celebrate a Cancer free life and hope for a cure for all.
Other celebrations have been Camp Breasties 2019 and dancing my way for Gilda's Club - The Bras For A Cause for my 2nd time.
