The Story

Less than 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  This diagnosis was a shock for myself as well as many medical professionals that I have encountered since.  I’ve heard variations of: “This came as a surprise because you are so young.”, too many times.  Words that aren’t as soothing as I know they are meant to be. 

February 10, 2017 a light brush against my left breast revealed a lump that my primary doc felt and said, “Possibly it’s a cyst, but get an ultrasound to be sure.” The next day I got an ultrasound and the radiologist said, “It’s perfectly round, but it’s solid.  Not a cyst.  Could be a fibroid.  Get a biopsy to be sure.”  A few days later I went for the biopsy and just one day after that I received the surreal news: “The results have come back.  The tumor is cancerous.”

Currently I am awaiting the results of genetic testing and (possibly) an MRI before surgery, though I have already decided on a mastectomy (not sure on whether that will be uni- or bi-lateral—undecided at this point) vs lumpectomy.  The next step, I wish I had an option on, but I do not: 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 5 years of medications.

Thus far I have been navigating this reality as best as I can.  I try my best to not get overwhelmed while educating myself on breast cancer and an overall healthier diet.  And I truly have an optimistic view on my care and recovery.

Your donations will assist with my medical care as well as household expenses that won't take a break even though there will be days (possibly even weeks) when I must take a break from working as I recover from treatments.

Wish me luck, guys! :)

I've added a photo--a cute show of my cut. My hair began to shed like crazy. The cut is just about no-maintenance. Besides, there are always wigs!

So far one person has donated. To you: THANK YOU 😊 May you receive your act of kindness back tenfold (or more)!

Anyone that would like to follow my journey, find my channel on YouTube Mckenzie Lacroix and visit my blog www.mckenzielacroix.com.
