Knock, Knock…It’s Cancer. {Episode 2}

In this episode, I find out that my cancer is aggressive and the double mastectomy surgery is pushed up. I also find out that I will need chemotherapy.

And what to do with all this hair?


An update on my status post-surgery (May 23, 2012):

“Good morning everyone.
Surgery went well and from what I hear we got some good news…I am in pain and tired but happy to have this surgery behind me. This is the easy part for me since I have been here 20 times before…going through chemo is my one fear right now. But I know i will get thru it with you positives vibes, prayers and dedications.
Love to all.
Xoxo — at Morristown Memorial Hospital.”
