I am a stage III breast cancer "thriver" and Registered Nurse who loves helping anyone who wants my help.

Recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer and off work while I go through treatment (surgery, chemo, radiation). I am 43, married for 17 years to Brad, and we have 2 boys - Zach is 14 and Carter is 11. I run outdoors year round and have done 3 half marathons (one in the snow). I want to do a full marathon at least once. I plan to spend time outdoors walking or running as I go through my treatments.
BRCA1 and POSITIVE!
Documenting my feelings and decisions made following a positive diagnosis for the breast and ovarian cancer gene; BRCA1. From living with a family history of breast cancer that touched 8 women to recovering from major surgery. My blog is honest about my journey and the research found along the way.
My wife died of Sarcoma in 1991, my mother died from chemo for breast cancer, and my grandmother died of ovarian cancer.
I read about the efforts to learn the causes of these diseases and attempt to educate others about them.
Health and fitness has been a part of my life since childhood. Never did I think that I would be diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 29 and breast cancer at the age of 31! Please follow me on my journey of strength, empowerment and survival as I "Fight Like A Girl" and kick some cancer a$$!
