Christina’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Christina's Story (Breast Cancer) LRI was 35, with a 3-yr-old little boy, just opening my own computer shop when I got my diagnosis. I had just moved into my own home after leaving an abusive marriage one year prior.

My cancer journey consisted of:

7 tumors, one burst
8 months of chemo
52 sessions of radiation
9 surgeries

I am still going strong.

FIGHT LIKE A GIRL.

  1. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. You my dear are a true hero to us all, you keep fighting like a girl and we will keep praying for you.

  3. Congrats to you and your strength. My sister who is two years older than I lives in OH, GM bought out their retirement during the recession, Her husband passed two weeks before she was diagnosed. She did all the chemos, treatments and meds. Did great, got her reconstruction surgery over and a bit later started coughing, it was so bad she had to go to the emergency room. They spent days taking fluid from her lungs and stabilizing her. Run multiple test and she was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer, Stage 4. Never been a smoker, great mom, grandmother and the strongest woman I will ever know. Her cancer markers began going down and are almost to the bottom. Her hair is growing back, she is busy as always, and living large. I thank God every day for her survival. Many prayers have been prayed for her life, God has given us a miracle.

    • Terry, you and your sisters are in my prayers. I believe that how we accept our condition is so very important (vital actually) to get past the diagnosis and on to the business at hand of surviving. God is still in the miracle business and pray that your sister continues to fight like a girl!

  4. All of you are inspiration to all us girls. I’m an oncology nurse. And have lost many friends. I’ll tell them your stories. Maybe they will fight more knowing it can happen.

    • Kathy, the instinct to fight for what’s important to us comes from our spirit within. Some people just don’t know how to fight and no matter what “survivor” stories they hear — the will must come from within. Nonetheless, I pray you can spread inspiration to help those you work with to a life of survival.
