Meet Carrie! While Carrie’s story includes her surviving breast cancer and recently getting married, the way the two of us met and got to know each other was through a mutual friend. Carrie and I both experienced the loss of a friend’s mom, Margie, to breast cancer. The loss was a hard one for so many of us. When Carrie was diagnosed, I prayed and asked Margie to watch over Carrie. I couldn’t image a different outcome so close to Margie’s passing. While I know without a doubt that Carrie fought her butt off and kicked cancers butt, my heart tells me she had a very special guardian angel!
Introduce yourself! When were you diagnosed and what diagnosis?
What has been the greatest challenge for you?
The greatest challenge for me during this journey was some days to be the strongest for my family. My fear was that if I was weak or scared this would allow the fear and cancer to take over. Fear is a funny thing when you give it power.
What have you learned from going through this journey?
What advice would you have to anyone who is going through what you are/were going through?
