When You Find A Lump
Finding a lump takes your breath away. Fear, anxiety, and thoughts of chemo and death instantly set in. I refused to let stupid, dumb breast cancer take me over, so I laughed at it, screamed at it, and fought it out of me. Well, that and I had some great doctors. I am not cancer, and it does not define me. The strength I get from my family, the support of my amazing friends, and love of strangers are what define me.
