Thank you American Cancer Society for having me here today as your Honorary Survivor, I'm truly honored to share my story.
...And thank you to our community for coming downtown this morning to support Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and it's mission to fund breakthrough research for breast cancer.
In August 2009, I found my lump, as I was scratching an itch when I felt an oblong thickening like my rib was a little swollen along my bra band. After further examining myself, I came to the realization, that I indeed had a breast lump.
2 days later, I had a mammogram done followed by an ultrasound. During the ultrasound, I remember seeing a large mass magnified up on the monitor screen. With fear, I asked if the lump was really that big? She said it was a medium size measuring 2cm.
