As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis.
Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.
Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life.
Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.
