My Story

I was asked to write my story about my journey with the ”c” word (cancer). Before I begin, I must start with some back story. It will explain why I made some of my decisions during this battle.

In 1992 I was a gestational diabetic that turned into a very brittle Type I diabetic. I went on an insulin pump and take well over 100 units of insulin every day. In case you aren’t familiar with diabetes, that is A LOT.

Fast forward to 2013. I was walking half marathons and doing well with my diabetes. In August of that year, I was suffering from a pain in my stomach. I thought I had a stomach bug. After a week of agony, I headed to the hospital. My appendix was about to burst, which it did during surgery.

Now if that was not bad enough, the hospitalist did not know how to handle anyone on an insulin pump taking that much insulin. Long story short, I almost died due to incorrect insulin management. Because of infection risk, my wound from appendix surgery had to be packed every day for 7.5 weeks. Thank goodness for good friends!

I guess you are beginning to wonder – where’s the cancer story? Six months after the appendix episode I was told I had breast cancer. Would you believe I got that news on April 1? Not funny…

I was terrified! Cancer and another surgery. I contacted my endocrinologist who recommended a great surgeon and cancer doctor. They worked together as a team. I chose to have a double mastectomy with no reconstruction. I was afraid to keep having surgeries. As a side effect of diabetes, I don’t heal well.

Today I am an eight year survivor. If you see me on the course – No, the boobs are not real because the real ones tried to kill me. Just remember the girl makes the boobs – the boobs don’t make the girl.

I also do another walk to raise money for cancer research and mammograms. I have done this walk (Pledge the Pink) for 7 years. Every year they ask us to sign a large board with the words “This is Why We Walk”. Every year I write the same thing and I will until there is a cure – So my children don’t have to.

I hope this inspires you to help raise money for the cure of this horrible disease.
