It's all about fighting to be healthy

After over 1 1/2 years of dealing with cancer and a BRCA2+ mutation diagnosis, I am finally working at getting my life and health back in order.

I have bouts of self-pity due to my increased risk of cancer and the fear of whether I passed it along to my daughter, but I try to deal with it and move on.

So now I am concentrating as best I can on exercising and eating right - all in a fight to stay healthy within my control.

So far so good...

Hi SHER_062
No I haven't been on here in about a year. I was diagnosed with early stages breast cancer last August and also BRCA2+, so I've been undergoing preventive surgeries and recovery all this time. Had my last surgery June 25 and I'm still in recovery. Hopefully soon I will get the all-clear to get back into things and then I will be back strong!
