Hi, my name is Sylvie and this is my breast cancer survivor story. Initially therapeutic, I soon realized how telling my story inspired so many in creating breast cancer awareness. If it's your first time here, read my first post to appreciate my story. Click here to read it now »
Wow. It’s really hard to believe that my one year anniversary has come and gone so quickly! Has it actually been one full year since this whole experience began? Time flies when you’re … well, maybe it wasn’t that much fun.
But really, I am completely amazed at how time flies.
September 11th of this year marked the first anniversary of my mastectomy.
On that day in 2006, I went under the knife and had my left breast removed. On that day, I officially began my new life.
And on that day, my world, my thoughts, my feelings, and my priorities, completely and radically changed.
Since my chemo has been officially over (forever) I have been desperately trying to get caught up on all the workload that fell behind while I was concentrating on getting better. So, I haven’t had a lot of time to write on this blog.
But I definitely need to take some time out to showcase some of the heroes that have helped me through this time in my life and talk about some people who have been inspired to turn my lemons into even more lemonade.
