Liz’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Liz's Story (Breast Cancer) LRI was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer on May 28, 2010 at the age of 48 after finding my lump as I was boxing at WII’s Gold’s gym. Who would have thought a game would have saved my life.  As I was boxing I felt something “pop” and, to make a long story short, the doctors think that when I did an uppercut a cyst popped & the tumor was under the cyst.

I had a lumpectomy, Chemo, & 33 rads and, as of right now, am Cancer free. If it wasn’t for my family, especially my NEW husband (just got married last week) not sure how I would have gotten through my year of hell! But I did and am now enjoying life to the fullest!

  3. It’s amazing the strength that comes from finding the lump yourself (and not through a random test). I found a lump and was told it was just a cyst. It didn’t go away and was ultimately I too, was 48 when I the biopsy came back as breast cancer. I named it Lucy, started chemo, had a double mammo and then 5 weeks of radiation with reconstruction (hopefully) complete! My warrior status was elevated by the fact that I was a student of the Korean Martial Art of Kumdo and not only was I fighting breast cancer–I had a sword with me most days…and wasn’t afraid to use it! Currently a red belt and my son just received his black belt. My training has been delayed by recon surgery but I was with him in spirit while he tested alone for his black belt!
