“A lot of people said, ‘Why’d you do chemo?’
To me, it’s worth putting my body through it, if it means it’ll take care of it. If it’s 10% on this side of the fence and 10% on this side of the fence – the cured category – then, I’m doing it.
It’s well worth losing the hair and feeling bad.
It’s a no-brainer to me.”
“My oncologist told me something I thought was interesting. He told me I was a good textbook case of someone who did everything right, but I still had to go through all the steps.
We caught it very, very early, and jumped on it and took care of it.
But what we are doing now, women were experimenting with 10 years ago.
And, what we are doing now, will help women 10 years from now.
That really stuck with me.”
