I was diagnosed with TNBC in the summer of 2018. I was three months into a new job and just over three months away from my daughter’s wedding. The news came on a Friday in June – at 400 p.m. – while I was getting ready for a party (one that I would not attend). I didn’t tell anyone, save my husband, until two weeks later: after the consult with the physicians, after a treatment plan was outlined, and after I had enough information that I could follow the announcement of, “I have breast cancer” with “but we’ve met with some great doctors and here’s the treatment plan.” I’ll also tell you that this blog posting is hard for me. Although I can come across as open, extroverted, and even gregarious at times – I’m not. But, here I am – so thankful and grateful for knowing a cohort of women with whom to travel this journey of thrivership. It’s what I need and for which I am thankful.
