I work as a speech language pathologist in a school setting. I love my job. I have been with my boyfriend for over a decade. He’s my rock. I love fitness and I have completed numerous mud runs and distance races. I love chocolate, scary movies, sunflowers, writing, crocheting, and mountains. I’m looking forward to falling back into some sort of “normalcy”.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on May 18, 2016 at 29 years old. It is stage 1a (15mm tumor, node negative). Estrogen and progesterone positive. HER2 negative. Oncotype of 21 (low intermediate). I found my tumor myself in the lower inner quadrant of my left breast. I am negative for the BRCA mutation.
