The day I found out I had breast cancer was the scariest day of my
life. I had just met the love of my life and we were just starting a
life together. All I could think of is “I won’t grow old with him. I
won’t see my niece and nephew grow up and get married”. But, it was
caught very early and I recovered because of the amazing doctors. The
doctors told me over and over “Diet and exercise is the best way to
keep from having any reoccurrence”.
After I recovered, I had lost a lot of muscle mass and all my
endurance was gone. I went back to my gym - back to weight lifting and
running but it wasn’t the same. I didn’t have any enthusiasm, no
motivation. I was bored and discouraged. I was lost………….
Then I meet Jean and everything changed….Now nothing can stop me!!! I
feel like I could live for ever!!
