Treatment location? Virginia Cancer Institute, Mechanicsville and Hanover Memorial Regional Hospital.
How was it found (self-examination, mammogram, annual checkup etc)? I knew something wasn’t right. Mammograms and ultrasounds did not pick up my cancer – I had to have a biopsy to be diagnosed.
Do you have a family history of breast cancer? No.
As a woman what gives you your strength (not necessarily a woman with breast cancer but just an average woman)? I would say that my strength comes from a combination, my amazing supportive husband, (my Rock), my beautiful children and a great group of wonderful friends.
Briefly state in your own words something about yourself that you want people to know. I love to work-out and I teach group exercise as a hobby in my spare time. I love to travel, especially to the Caribbean. I’ve had the opportunity to live in places such as Hawaii and Germany! I also love to cook and entertain. I’m a firm believer in giving back to the community, so I volunteer for a couple of organizations.
One person CAN make a difference......be that person
