Mature Beyond Her Years

  She was 28 years old when she was diagnosed (on the right with myself and staff member). She will have survived breast cancer for many years before most women are having their first mammogram. Her post is long but nicely written and insightful for a young woman who was forced to grow up very quickly. IN HER OWN WORDS: Life was great; I’d graduated college, had an amazing career in Finance and I had recently enrolled in a Master’s program to further…

Faith, Belief, and a Favorable Outcome

It is Sunday and I turn to a survivor (in the middle with husband and a former staff member) with a deep spiritual outlook on curing breast cancer. IN HER OWN WORDS: By the grace of GOD almighty I am a breast cancer survivor. I met Dr. Kehoe in 2000. Prior to meeting Dr. Kehoe, I had been having my yearly mammogram. Two separate doctors who read the results always told me everything was good, clean and clear even in 2000. When…

I Took Hormones and Now I Take Hormone Blockers

I Beat Homelessness and I’ll Beat This Cancer

IN HER OWN WORDS: Life has been a rough roller coaster ride for me and my children. We have been through a lot of hard times including being homeless for almost 3 years. I finally thought I had everything in order, got out the homeless shelter,…

9 Months Pregnant and….

Imagine you are about to deliver your first baby and breast cancer charges into your life and changes everything….It is hard to describe this survivor’s incredible ordeal in a few paragraphs. Despite the arrival of breast cancer and her struggles, two beautiful daughters were delivered to this young couple and to the world. When I asked this survivor to take part in this project, she presented me with four pages single spaced. She had been reluctant to talk much about…

Breast Cancer and “The Glam Cam”

These two know how to take a selfie. Today’s survivor is on the left with a staff member, who looks like a seasoned selfie participant. Neither is camera shy. We are calling this their “glam cam shot.” This survivor’s look tells you everything. But this patient was confused about her treatment after receiving upsetting news. She persevered through rough treatment and look at her today! IN HER OWN WORDS: After I was diagnosed in 2008, I begged Dr. Kehoe to remove…
