Almost 1 year ago, I never would have believed that this journey would have taken me to where I am today. Amy says it perfect..."You couldn't pay me enough money to go back and be that person again". This journey has led me to a group of the most amazing, inspiring, and supportive friends I could ever hope for. It has given me the opportunity to help other women through their own journeys no matter how small it might be. It was never an easy road to get to where I am right now, but I am proud of where it has taken me. I am proud to be a survivor and to be a part of such an amazing group of women. I was so honored when I was asked to be a part of this segment on San Antonio Living. The experience itself, was absolutely incredible. Given the opportunity to bring awareness to the younger generation and encouraging them to do self exams and mammograms means everything to me. I am forever grateful to my support group for everything they have done for me and all of our ladies. If you are local, I encourage you to join our amazing group of young survivors - and that goes for the young at heart too! I now have a group of 40 women who have my back, who understand me, who "get it". I couldn't ever ask for more than that. For 6 months, I locked myself away. I was depressed, I felt alone, I had no idea how I was going to go forward in life. I can never thank Sandra and Amy enough for creating this amazing group, for welcoming me with open arms, and for adding me as a board member. I am forever grateful to both of them. So without further or do...here it is. My first TV interview. What an awesome experience. Was I nervous? ABSOLUTELY!!! But life is about being vulnerable and opening yourself up to new experiences. Let your guard down, put yourself out there, and see where life takes you.
