In June 2016, I was diagnosed with stage 3 triple negative breast cancer.
My sister had recently had a bilateral mastectomy from cancer and they found a lump in my left breast.
That month I had a lumpectomy and and a month late 6 months of chemotherapy and then 6 weeks of radiation.
I feel so lucky to be alive and it may have been worse if I  had not gone for the mammogram when I did.
My sister has since passed from cancer.
I always said that she saved me.
I am a nurse and now have a greater empathy for the patients I care for and know how important it is to look after yourself.
