I was first diagnosed in 2003 and again in 2006. Tried all the—it was depressing at first but I try to keep my spirits because my mother was—it affected her more than me. So after that, I’ll cry but I’ll wait until I get off to my self and I try to keep my spirits up for my family, have a big family. So at first I was embarrassed and ashamed, I didn’t want any body to know, never left the house, but the second time around is a whole lot easier. I just go through finishing up my chemo and radiation, but now I’m having surgery again Tuesday, yes they found another lump. Really my niece and nephew, I look forward to seeing them everyday. Going to graduation, birthdays and going to church to help a lot, so that’s the biggest part. It’s getting better everyday.
