I had another surgery in October, part of reconstruction so we decided to dye my hair bright pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My son was there every step of the way. My final surgery was March 16th, 2017. I am sore, but all the cancer is gone.
Not only did this life altering situation make me take a closer look at the rest of my life, it makes me so proud every day of my 7-year-old son and the amazing boy he is, and an amazing man he will be. If he hadn’t been there for me over the past year and a half, I don’t know what type of attitude I would be dealing with. But thanks to him, I can’t wait to continue to watch him grow into an adult. I plan on being around for a very long time, especially since I found out my random singing in public mortifies him!!!! (A parent HAS to have some evil fun!!!)
Thank you for letting me tell our story. Chive on!!!
All you Chivettes, be vigilant; keep up with all appointments and do your self-exams!!!
