I am a 33 year old woman, I live in New York, I have good friends, and good work, I go to the gym every week…… Everything was fine until I got a breast cancer diagnosis and everything changed. I’m starting to fight breast cancer, but I don’t know if I can do it.
I think you don’t know where your limits are until you face the challenge. And I did a good job in the course of breast cancer fighting, although it was not easy, fortunately, my surgery and treatment were smooth. The love and encouragement from my family and friends gave me unlimited power. As a survivor, I can say proudly: I can do it.
now, I’ve been born for seven years, and for the past four years, I’ve shared my experience with breast cancer to other breast cancer patients and told them that even if you have breast cancer, there’s hope. As a manager of the Avon Walk breast cancer program, I am proud to announce that we have raised $470 million over the past ten years to help patients with breast cancer. I am so lucky to have a good health insurance and a good doctor, but not everyone is so lucky. The work we do every day can help and change the lives of patients, and we are funding new research and prevention and treatment.
I will remember when
was diagnosed with breast cancer after confusion and fear, I will think of those good things I get early in the process, it makes the relationship between my friends and family, more closely, has changed my life. In Avon Walks, I saw the sisters together to celebrate Mother’s recovery, see mother and daughter together, see men to accompany their wives through — people do what they can to support their loved ones. I think, every time someone is diagnosed with breast cancer, but also to tell the people around her, to pay more attention to their health, even the bad things will have a good harvest.
