When the oncologist called with the results of the biopsy, my daughter, who’d just given birth, was ill and in the hospital. My infant grandson had just come home from neonatal intensive care.

My cancer journey began in 2000. On the same day that I discovered a lump in my breast, my mother had a heart attack. I immediately flew from my home in New York to Virginia to be with her and my siblings.

One day I had been wearing some clothing that was a bit tighter than what I usually wear. When I took it off that evening, I noticed a lump in the center of my right breast, as well as a lump underneath my armpit. I felt both of them. I waited a few days and the one under my arm seem to disappear. But I checked the one underneath the right breast and it was still there.

When I was 57 years old, I went to my local doctor near my home in Nashville, Tennessee, for my annual mammogram. After the exam, I received a call from my doctor telling me I needed to come back to her office. I had a biopsy, and was soon diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer.

It was during a vacation that I noticed a lump in my left breast while I was in the shower. I was 47 years old at the time, and I panicked immediately and called my doctor. There’s no history of breast or other cancers in my family. My doctor and I agreed that she would take a look at my annual check-up, which was already scheduled for when I returned home from my vacation.

After noticing a lump during a breast self-exam in 2010 I had a biopsy in my home state of Colorado. I received the dreaded results - - it was cancer. A lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy revealed tumors in several lymph nodes that were larger than the one in my breast. I was diagnosed as having Stage II breast cancer and I would require another surgery to get a clean margin as well as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Going through cancer treatment requires a lot of strength—physical, emotional, and mental. To stay strong, it’s important to have caregivers, both family and healthcare professionals, who continue to see you as a whole person, rather than focusing solely on the disease.

I was 30 years old when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. My family had just come home from vacation, and while I was doing laundry I noticed bloody discharge coming from my left breast. I could feel a mass there, and called my doctor immediately.
