Demetric Diagnosed at 36

"I'm a mother of 3, and I fight everyday to see them grow up. This has really affected my everyday life. So many side effects and too many meds."

I found the 2 lumps in my right breast after having sharp pain all night. I went to the emergency room January of 2021 and got an ultrasound. They referred to see a primary care physican. I made an appointment to get a mammogram in February of 2021. Then a biopsy in April 2021.

I found out that same month I had stage IIB breast cancer. May 2021, started my first round of chemotherapy treatment.

I'm a mother of 3, and I fight everyday to see them grow up. This has really affected my everyday life. So many side effects and too many meds. What can you do, right. 

Are you a survivor, spouse, friend, or caretaker with a story to tell? We'd love to hear from you.
