Thanks for all your inspiration Terry
I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer last year at the age of 48. After the shock wore off I started my journey head on. I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. While recovering I did a lot of research about diet, Naturopathetic medicine etc. I was having a hard time trying to understand why I should undergo Chemo therapy and poison my body if the cancer was gone. This was a very hard decision for me to make. After a second opinion and being told if my cancer came back I’d be dead in a year I started 6 months (16 rounds) of Chemo. I have supported and done every Terry Fox Run ! Knowing that medicine has come a long way since Terry’s fight I just kept up my positive attitude just like he did.
I am happy to say that I am now done my treatment and cancer free. I of course have a lot of follow up appointments and tests for the next 5 years but I’m here ! So thanks for all your inspiration Terry. You have and will continue to help so many people!
