breast cancer october

October 3rd, 2015 · 8 Comments

pinki don’t know why but seeing pink everywhere now that it’s October isn’t making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. it’s that whole “for a cure” thing that is really rubbing me the wrong way. not like i’m a scientist or doctor by any means but soooooo much awareness and support going into finding a cure when the “cure” is staring us all right in the face.

but who knows, maybe everyone is different and maybe millions of women are dying because they don’t have all of the tools/information they need, which is absolutely the case if they are just listening to their medical doctors and thinking that is their only option.

that is why i wrote and am sharing this paper. the information in this is what fell in to my lap as a HUGE BLESSING and something i wouldn’t feel right not to pass on to whoever might need it. those first few days/weeks after being diagnosed are a crazy tornado of thoughts and confusion and holy crap i just can’t imagine a woman having to tackle it all on her own.

there is a lot of information out there and even more science. this is what worked for me. i really truly hope it can work for others.

thank you to stupid cancer for featuring me as a survivor story on their podcast. i hope we can talk again soon !

    Christa, I read an article about you and just have to agree… Pinktober sucks for any cancer patient with metastatic disease. Fantastic you took charge and became an empowered patient and pursued personalized medical care! Someday it will be available for anyone, I hope. Blessings for a long, healthy, cancer-free life! -K (5-year Lung Cancer survivor)
