OMG! This was exactly what happened to me… but unfortunately.. I just got married a year before.. and we were too sad and didn’t really have the money to even think about freezing embryos… I have a daughter already and he has two kids.. but when they asked us.. I was like OMG.. I can’t think.. and then it was too late.. I had to start chemo. I felt exactly how you did though.. I think about the beginning.. and how I just cried and cried and my 11 year old daughter had no idea why I was coming home from work and locking myself in my room! I love your story and I will share it hopefully on facebook.. because it is exactly how I felt! One thing that keeps me going is knowing God healed me and helped me through such a difficult time! Also.. last year I was pregnant for like 2 weeks… (we were having trouble conceiving.) and I started thinking.. man.. if I stayed pregnant.. my diagnosis probably would’ve been worse.. or maybe it would’ve healed it.. Not sure.. but I know things happen for a reason.. and I thank God for helping me find it and healing me and helping me get through it. I have about 1/2 inch of hair on my head now.. but it was 9 months of torture!!!! I only had 8 weeks of treatment though.. not sure why you had to do it for sooo long. I am now on meds for the next 5 to 10 years.. although mine wasn’t that much estrogen positive.. but now I’m menopausal because of the shots every month.. and I get hot flashes every day!!!! I hate “C” and I hate how it ruins your life and your choices, and dreams… but it made me stronger.. and I don’t stress out over too much anymore.. or worry over little things! God is in control.. He created us.. and I know He loves us.. and helps us to grow stronger.. and be much better after a hard trial! Anyways.. thanks again for your cartoon.. I LOVED IT!!!
Thank you so much Jessica for your comment and sharing your story. It is nice to see how strong you are with so much strengths. I wish you and your family all the best and I will keep my fingers crossed hoping to reduce your daily hot flushes!! 😉😝
I love your cartoon blog and your positive outlook. I was diagnosed in Sept2014 with invasive ductile breast cancer. I was supposed to have surgery but then my lump grew so I was put on Taxol treatment for 12 weeks. A week after first treatment, my lump was still growing and it hurt terribly so I was put on the very aggressive A/C treatment, every 3 weeks and 6 treatments total. The treatments are already shrinking the lump down after just one week. I know it will be a long road and difficult journey. I appreciate that you have shared your experiences and I admire your courage and strength.
Hello JB, thanks a lot for your comment. I am sorry you have to face cancer too. Yes the road is long but will make you stronger. Thinking of you and sending you love xx

Bonne continuation et all the best sur le chemin de ta recovery 🙂
