Kimberly’s Story (Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer)

Kimberly's Story (Breast and Ovarian Cancer) I have been a single mom for thirty years.  The dad would show up in the picture from time to time. My younger year’s started out as a struggle anyway. When I was 37 my mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer, she was only 60. It was only then that I started to take my health seriously. I started to have all the check ups and tests I knew I should have been having all along.

When I was 39 I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd child.  Seven months into my pregnancy I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I did the radiation, the chemo, everything.

After my baby was born, and a year and a half later, I was in remission, clean and clear from breast cancer.

Sweep forward 13 years, and I am now diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer. The surgeries and treatment’s I needed were not available near where I lived in a small town so I packed up my youngest two daughter’s and moved to Phoenix, AZ. I have been doing radiation and chemo for 6 month’s now.

I feel like a warrior. I beat breast cancer, and I intend to beat ovarian cancer as well.

  1. I am Kimberly, the author of this Breast/Ovarian Cancer story. I am happy to report that I am currently in remission. I feel blessed to have overcome cancer twice in my life. Life style choices and diet will always be a preventative regime in my life in helping keep cancer at bay. Cancer patients and cancer survivors are a special breed of human kind…….men, women, children…..cancer doesn’t discriminate…….it does make us all tough, strong, and courageous! You learn a lot more about life when faced with cancer……you appreciate more about life, whenfaced with cancer. In my personal experience…..I loved a lot more, forgave alot more and cherished everything a lot more.

  2. Congratulations! You have the power!
    We never know what will come tomorrow! Just keep fighting!!!
    live your life everyday with faith and love!!!
