Fast forward a few years, and I unexpectedly received my own diagnosis in January 2021.
At 33-years-old, I found out I had Stage 2B triple-negative invasive ductal carcinoma. You know, the super cool kind. I immediately reached out to Z, and she walked me through the whole process of becoming a RAD athlete while providing love and support to make me feel heard and safe.
Going through this is sucky and scary.
I can honestly say the pros far outweigh the cons — I now have coaches Johnna (Donna) and Keisha (Kiki) and all of my boob sisters in my life, and I am counting down the days until I can hug them all.
