THE STORY:

On December 1, 2009, at 34 years of age, 4 months pregnant, and with no family history, my world turned upside down when I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I spent the rest of my pregnancy in chemotherapy and was then induced on March 30, 2010, when we welcomed our perfect little angel, Taxiarchi Michael Russ.  Taxiarchi in Greek refers to the Archangels, which was an appropriate name since we had been surrounded by angels throughout the journey, and he was my angel, my co-survivor.

I spent my maternity leave in 12 more weeks of chemotherapy, followed by surgery, and then continued Herceptin treatments.  This was not how I imagined spending my first years as a new mom, but I learned so much during that time - lessons that have stayed with me and have made me a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend.

Throughout the duration of my active treatment, I learned how to give up control and accept help from others.  It was a humbling experience, and in His wisdom, God knew this was something I needed, so I am very thankful for this experience.

I am also thankful for the tremendous support I received during treatment and beyond.  My family is unmatched when it comes to loving and supporting each other.  And what a blessing it was to be employed by the compassionate organization where I was also being treated, OhioHealth.  In an effort to stay connected with my newfound area of passion, I transitioned my work into cancer services, and I am now the Director of Breast Health at OhioHealth.

Throughout the journey, I realized what a treasure all of the support and understanding was.  I realized that many other women on a similar journey do not share that treasure.  Many women on that journey find themselves in hardships that can impede their ability to focus on restoring their health.  For that reason, the mission of the Pink Fund is an important one that I feel honored to support.

Please consider donating and attending this exciting event for an honorable cause.  Thank you, and God bless!

XO Pauline
