    February 15th 2017 I received a unilateral mastectomy to my right breast. All the pictures, information, and stories I’ve seen and heard still didn’t prepare me for what I went through. Two years ago today a part of me was removed forever. The part of me that makes me a woman...the part of me I used to feed all 3 of my children as babies...the part of me that I was told “wasn’t much of” so it won’t look bad. I woke up this morning feeling grateful to be alive because 2 years ago today I was in a hospital bed recovering from a major surgery. .
    3 of the things I’ve learned from this Chapter of my Life:
    My Family is the best thing that’s ever happened to me ❤️
    I’m stronger than I could ever imagine ❤️
    Despite what was taken from me, I have and will always be Beautiful ❤️
    .
    1 in 8 women born in the US will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their Lifetime.
    I was a 1 in 8!!! I fought...and I WON! 💪🏾

    Meet a breast cancer survivor who also happens to be our woman crush for today 😌

    Reposted from @feminine_phenom
    .

    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 🤗🤗🤗
    .
    If you think this information can be helpful and inspiring to others you are more than welcome to Share 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

    “My Scar is the Representation of my Victory!” That is why I show it proudly and boldly ❤️

    I struggled with what to say or even to post anything on #worldcancerday but then I reconsidered.

    Before all of this cancer stuff I never thought it was a possibility for me. I was sure the lump I found was a cyst and so was my doctor. I was a “healthy” 33 year old. Breast cancer does not run in my family. I eat mostly paleo and work out 5 days a week. Not me... no way!

    But cancer doesn’t discriminate, it doesn’t care who you are, your age, what you eat or your family history. Please take care of yourself. Be your own advocate and if something doesn’t feel or look right get it checked out. Your LIFE depends on it.

    Myself and those closest to me will never be the same and this battle is far from over. But one thing I know is this. Cancer won’t win!

    LAST CHEMO!!! #getmeoutahere Massive thanks to all the truly fabulous mates who have loved and supported me through this mess and my excellent fella and kids and mum and fam who have put up with a lot from me in the last few months. Thanks also to the awesome staff at @petermaccancercentre . I have one more minor surgery and radiation to go which feels like nothing in comparison to the horror of chemo. Let me know who wants a bubbles with me in a few weeks time when I’m over this round. I’m pretty keen to celebrate. 💃 #getyourboobschecked

    What an epically shit day. Having to have a canula put in when you didn’t even realise you needed one for an MRI and you hate needles, then having to completely ungracefully squeeze your cans into the breast inserts of an MRI bed only to then be cooked from the inside and spend the next half an hour in a constant sweat is so much bloody fun 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️ a couple of quiet anxious tears as it started but mostly because it’s been a long time coming and the mammogram was over in seconds so that was easy. I got home feeling generally exhausted and emotionally drained. Anxiety really sucks on a good day. This was not a good day. I can’t wait to finally have results back in a couple of weeks so I can put all this shit behind me but in the mean time my amazing hubby thought he would surprise me with a 100ml bottle of one of my favourite perfumes. This tells me that no matter how shit things get in pretty sure a little Jimmy Choo can fix most of it 💁🏼‍♀️ I am so lucky to be married to such an amazing guy.

    So last week I went in for a routine “hey 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 💗

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

    First mammogram ever. I’m almost 46. @natashaswinter ‘s post about her recent diagnosis scared the shit out of me. Actually, her post and encouragement to get checked got my ass to the doctor, who actually referred me to get a mammogram. She couldn’t believe I’d never had one. So GET CHECKED. It was quick and easy (mostly bc my boobs are small 😂😂😂) #breastcancerawareness #getchecked #mammogram #womenshealth

    Howdy to my friends and followers 😉 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 titanium🎗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 ribbon🎗 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.

    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). 💕💕💕💕💕💕 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 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!

    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.
    .
    It’s Fact/MCM day ❤️ whenever I’m down I can always count on this man right here to hold me up. He’ll never let me fall 😍 These pics were taken a couple years ago when I still had both boobies 😍 it was a very empowering experience for the both us and it brought us closer together ❤️ nothing says I love you more than having your nude body covered in paint 🤣💞

    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 ❤️ .
    If you think this information can be helpful and inspiring to others you are more than welcome to Share 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

    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 🤗🤗🤗

    Fact #24 : Breast self-exam (BSE) is a step-by-step approach a woman can use to look at and feel her breasts to check for anything abnormal.
    .
    I performed a breast self exam and it saved my life ❤️ pictures here, my Oncologist is performing an exam over my scar...she then did a breast exam on my left breast ❤️ Swipe left to see how to perform a breast self exam 🤗 this is not a diagnosis! Remember to go to the doctor to get your BOKBS checked by getting a mammogram/ultrasound 🙏🏾🤗
