Everything You Need to Know, from the Waiting Room to the Bedroom
The “What to Expect When You're Expecting” for cancer patients
I am a Stage IV inflammatory breast cancer survivor. I went from perfectly healthy (lots of yoga, lots of broccoli) to not feeling great to being told I had an extensive tumor in my left breast and cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes and potentially a rib. I was given roughly three to five years to live, all at the age of thirty-seven. With the help of an incredibly diligent family and a team of brilliant doctors and a tiny green chemotherapy clinical trial drug, I’m still here. It is not an exaggeration to say it’s a miracle that I’m alive. I am a survivor, and I am grateful.
