My post today is for one of the blogger challenges offered by the SL Christmas Expo called “Why I Relay“. The challenge is for anyone who has a personal reason to support Relay For Life and the American Cancer Society and like it or not, I have reason.
I am a two time breast cancer survivor. First diagnosed in 2007, I went through the usual treatment; chemo, surgery, radiation. Thankfully, I was able to move forward, rarely giving cancer another thought, determined not to live in fear of the “what if’s” and I did that successfully. Fast forward to 2016, when I learned it was back, this time learning I had inherited a gene mutation, BRCA2 that raised my odds of getting breast and ovarian cancer greatly, 80% in fact. There was more surgery, more chemo but I did it all again, successfully and am doing well today.
