I joke that this is my annual gift from my sister πŸ˜‚ I’ll be super glad when it’s over. #breastcancer #mammogramssuck #thankssissy If you’re over the age of 40 then you need to make an appointment. #getyourboobschecked it’s important!

  • So last week I went in for a routine β€œhey your 40 years old mammogram”

    Thinking we would be in and out, TJ and I had plans Friday afternoon.
    After over 2 hours at the Drs, I was told you need to have a needle biopsy.....
    My whole world just stopped and I could not believe what I just heard.
    I was determined to get my biopsy that day, and I am so thankful to Windsong Radiology for squeezing me in that afternoon.
    My results came in this morning and TJ and I are so relieved that I do not have breast cancer and only have to return in 6 months for another Mammogram.
    Please ladies, go get your boobies checked, make the call and schedule your appointment.
    I would be happy to go with anyone who needs support πŸ’—

  • This is a wellness Wednesday reminder β€”- Get Checked!! All women can get breast cancer, even those with no family history. The best protection is early detection.

  • Howdy to my friends and followers πŸ˜‰ I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I’ve just been dealing with a medical situation and spending time with my kids. With the oldest still training it took me awhile to share with him. I guess for that full story of this picture started twenty two years ago when I was pregnant with the twins and my doctor found a lump in my breast. The doctor did a biopsy and marked the spot with the titaniumπŸŽ—ribbon that you can see in the bottom of the picture, thankfully it was benign. Six weeks ago I went in for my annual mammogram and a few days later I was called back for an ultrasound, more mammograms, and a biopsy, where they found a lump and put in another ribbonπŸŽ— in the circle. Thursday I had the other weird looking device placed to guide the surgeon on what area to remove. Tomorrow I will be having my lumpectomy and they will be taking this still questionable area out. I will hopefully find out whether it is benign or malignant by the end of November.
    Please keep my little family in your thoughts and send us some positive vibes.

  • Chandler, Arizona
  • Wellness Wednesday
    Breast cancer awareness was last month. One month isn’t enough. * About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12.4%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. * For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. * Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. * About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. * The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• September 24 I received the call. After a routine mammogram I was called back for a follow up due to calcifications on both breasts. Most often these are nothing to most women, for me this year they were confirmed cancerous in my left breast.
    I am lucky lucky tho, I caught it early. What I have is non-invasive - meaning it is contained in my duct and hasn’t spread. It is treatable with a lumpectomy and radiation, no chemotherapy.

    Many women are not so lucky. Many women don't go for their annual mammogram --- like exercise and eating healthy they have lots of dumb excuses for not doing it. "I don't have the time." "It hurts." "My mom never went and she was fine." etc etc etc or dumb dumb dumb

    I almost used one of those excuses to miss mine this year. I almost cancelled because I didn’t want to take time off work after being placed in a new position and was in training. I am so thankful that I didn't because in a year my story would have been very different.
    I am lucky. I am strong. I will be ok.
    If I can't motivate you to take care of yourself with my workouts and my more often than not heathy food choices, I hope I can motivate you with this post. You only have one life - don't cut it short because a little test hurts or takes you out of work or is hard to schedule in to your busy schedule.

    Get checked. If you haven’t had your annual mammogram, schedule it today. Early detection makes a difference.

    Well beautiful ladies and handsome gentlemen we have come to the conclusion of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Of course we all know Breast cancer care is every single day. So we need to be getting our boobs checked year round πŸ’—
    .
    Well it’s been one crazy month for me and I’d like to share something with you all. When I had my semi-annual check up with my Oncologist a couple weeks ago, I actually found some swollen lymph nodes and what could be a lump. I’ve been scheduled for an MRI that is routine, but in this case it’s to find out if there will be additional tests needed. Now I am one super strong chick and positivity BEAMS out of me...but when I realized what could be I almost broke down. All these different thoughts and feelings...It would’ve been easy for me to run and hide...stop making posts...but you know what??!!! I’m good!!! I have AMAZING people in my life who love and support me. I have SUPER AMAZING kids who (out the blue) compliments me on how awesome I am ❀️ I will be okay. I AM okay ❀️
    .
    I’m no longer worried about the results of what some test days. I am already healed ❀️ in Jesus name!

    Here’s my last powerful picture for this month ❀️ I’m Bold and Beautiful πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

    Fact #29 : A frequently asked question is what kind of impact does stress have on breast cancer?
    Answer: In 2012, some research studies have shown that factors such as traumatic events and losses can alter immune system functions, and when immune functions are altered cancer cells may have an opportunity to get themselves established within one’s body. What has been shown is that it is not the fact that a major life crisis has occurred but instead how the individual reacted to this event and coped (or didn’t cope). Therefore, identifying ways to keep your stress level in check is wise.

    Yes yes I know 😭😭😭 a whole weekend without some Breast Cancer Facts!!! Well here you go πŸ€—
    .
    Facts #26 , #27 , #28 : MYTHS MYTHS MYTHS
    Myth #1 : You don’t need to get screened for breast cancer before age 40.
    Fact: Routine screening is not recommended for women under age 40 because the risk of breast cancer is low. Also, screening mammograms are not as effective in detecting breast cancer in younger women because they generally have dense breast tissue, which can make it more difficult to detect breast cancer on a mammogram. However, BC Breast Screening does accept women at high risk of developing breast cancer who are under age 40 with a doctor's referral.
    Myth #2 : You can’t get screened if you have breast implants.
    Fact: Women with breast implants should have regular mammograms. Please note that you won’t be able to make an appointment directly with BC Cancer Breast Screening as you may require special positioning and possibly some additional images.
    Myth #3 : If you have a family history of breast cancer, you are likely to develop breast cancer, too.
    Fact: While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only about 10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.
    .
    When I found out I was diagnosed with breast cancer, soooo many things ran through my brain as to why??? Family history? Certain foods? I just didn’t understand why 😒 BUT I SURVIVED through it! I just came to terms that I was supposed to go through this to help others ❀️ .

    Fact: While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only about 10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.

    When I found out I was diagnosed with breast cancer, soooo many things ran through my brain as to why??? Family history? Certain foods? I just didn’t understand why 😒 BUT I SURVIVED through it! I just came to terms that I was supposed to go through this to help others ❀️ .

Yes yes I know 😭😭😭 a whole weekend without some Breast Cancer Facts!!! Well here you go πŸ€—
.
Facts #26, #27, #28: MYTHS MYTHS MYTHS 
Myth #1: You don’t need to get screened for breast cancer before age 40.
Fact:  Routine screening is not recommended for women under age 40 because the risk of breast cancer is low. Also, screening mammograms are not as effective in detecting breast cancer in younger women because they generally have dense breast tissue, which can make it more difficult to detect breast cancer on a mammogram. However, BC Breast Screening does accept women at high risk of developing breast cancer who are under age 40 with a doctor's referral.
Myth #2: You can’t get screened if you have breast implants.
Fact: Women with breast implants should have regular mammograms. Please note that you won’t be able to make an appointment directly with BC Cancer Breast Screening as you may require special positioning and possibly some additional images. 
Myth #3: If you have a family history of breast cancer, you are likely to develop breast cancer, too.
Fact: While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only about 10% of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease.

    Fact #25 : About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer. These occur due to genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.
    .
    Example: If your mom is diagnosed with breast cancer. It doesn’t mean you will definitely be diagnosed with it too. But it does mean you may need to get your BOOBS checked at an earlier age. If you haven’t scheduled your appt yet, go ahead and schedule it in the morning πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

    Fact #23 : Getting regular exercise is important for breast cancer survivors’ continued health. Physical activity can help lessen certain side effects of treatment, such as fatigue and depression, and has been shown to reduce risk of recurrence and improve survival.
    .
    I’m a testament to this fact πŸ’– I have been working my buns off to stay as active and healthy as I possibly can. More recently this year I decided to do a show...which turned into 2 shows within 4 weeks of each other ❀️❀️❀️ This is a pic from my last show last weekend. I believe my message is clear! I’m a Breast Cancer Survivor πŸ’– My right breast is GONE πŸ’– I have NO reconstruction πŸ’– I still have PAIN πŸ’– and I’m STILL doing the damn thang πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΎ with my head held high and a smile on my face 😊😊😊 it’s not always easy, but I tell myself daily that I’m worth it! Now go get your BOOBS checked because you’re worth it! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

  • Words from healthfinder.gov:
    β€œBreast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

    The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat.

    National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of detecting breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms, and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.”
    .
    .
    I had three mammograms in my early 30’s, I’m now 39 and I was the youngest one each time in the waiting room.
    .
    I had to get a biopsy done bc I had three small masses in my left breast. Luckily they were benign, however every year I need to get a sonogram of my breast.
    .
    This has been for years now and it’s preventative to catch something early.
    .
    If you feel something talk to your doctor or doctors until someone listen. Be proactive, you must understand this has nothing to do with age. .

    Facts #21 and #22 : You may have concerns about sexuality after breast cancer. Physical changes, especially after breast surgery, can make some women less comfortable with their bodies. There may be a loss of sensation in the affected breast. Other treatments for breast cancer, such as chemotherapy, can change your hormone levels and may affect your sexual interest and/or response.
    Relationship issues are also important. Your partner may worry about how to express love physically and emotionally after treatment, especially after surgery. But breast cancer can be a growth experience for couples – especially when partners take part in decision-making and go along to treatments.
