Cancer is a scary word and being diagnosed with cancer will immediately change your life.  Until I was diagnosed, I had no idea just how invasive cancer could be. 

Up until 3 months ago, I was healthy and active and my biggest complaints in life were about too much traffic and having an extra 10 (ok, maybe 20) pounds to lose.  My symptoms came out of nowhere and quickly increased in severity.  After suffering through a week of vomiting 2-5x/day the do...

"In a world full of darkness be the bright light." I woke up this morning with a heavy heart and reminder that even on your worst mental day it isn't all that bad, and it's better than the alternative. I woke up missing my sweet friend, Amber, and feeling sad for those families who have lost loved ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom. I am forever thankful. If I have learned anything from my life obstacles, it's to never take people fo...

In Sept 2014, while studying for my Chemistry final in my dorm room I had a seizure and ended up in the hospital.  I was so grateful I was not studying alone that night and my friends knew exactly what to do.  I woke up in a hospital.  The doctor diagnosed me with Oligoastrocytoma which causes seizures.  After 2 brain surgeries I was told they removed all the cancer cells they could see and there was no guarantee the tumor will not come back.  I was thankful t...

In January 2017, I was diagnosed with Stage 2B Nodulan Sclerosis Hodgkin Lymphoma. I knew I would have to undergo chemotherapy, but I had no idea I would have to go through fertility treatment in order to preserve my eggs if I wanted a family one day. To say that the fertility process was an overwhelming situation was an understatement! It was a month long process of doctors' visits, blood work and ultrasounds, and injections before my egg freezing procedure....

From Jan to Dec. 2014 I battled cancer.  Cancer does not just last through your treatment, it lives with you forever.  Some great advise I received from my Oncologist at Northside Hospital was find something and immerse yourself in it.  Well I did just that.  In January 2016 I delivered a beautiful baby girl.  What a blessing she is.  In 2016 I became a Rise Athlete and I am headed to the NPC stage in 2017....

Today is very exciting because I have 15 follicles growing and they're all around 14-16mm each! I was told that I'm getting closer to my egg retrieval. I can't wait to for it to happen because I feel very bloated.

I had a 7am appointment this morning to get an ultrasound and blood work. It was rough getting up because my mind wouldn't let me sleep last night. In better news, I have several follicles growing on both sides of my ovaries. My largest follicles are 10mm and 11mm. The rest of my follicles are at 8mm or less. The doctor changed the dosage of Menopur to a higher dosage and Gonal-f stayed the same. The doctor also added another injection to my fertility treatmen...

As devastating as it was to find out at age 31 that I have breast cancer and I will be losing my breasts, it was as equally devastating to hear that I am at risk of losing my fertility as a result of chemotherapy. I absolutely adore my nephews and have worked so hard to become ready for children of my own. With everything that I have to give up for my overall health and well-being, I feel like I am also giving up what makes me a woman and potentially losing th...
