“I didn’t get time to prepare.
I laugh, because, you know, I bought my house and I had this long ‘to do’ list. I just started shortening it between each surgery.
I think the night before my mastectomy, I painted the hall bathroom!
I just took it as it came.
The finances, I just dealt with it as it came. My parents helped a lot. The airlines helped a lot.
I didn’t get to prepare for it.”
“I can’t tell you how many times, a couple of months later, I’d look in the mirror and think,
‘How did I get to this place? I’m skinny, I’m bald, I have no boob….’
I was just trucking through life, and then, bam, it changed.
So I just took it day by day.”
