I Am

One year ago today my whole world changed when I reluctantly joined the Breast Cancer Club. I've had
mixed emotions all day. Sometimes I'd be on the verge of tears. I could feel them behind my eyes, pressuring me into flooding my classroom. Then I'd get so busy that I forgot I'd even been on this journey. I've changed a lot in these past 12 months, but in a good way.

I am healthy and have more energy than I did a year ago.
I am grateful for having a professional, compassionate medical team.
I am whole again, even though a piece of me was taken.
I am blessed to have such a loving family and friends care for me.
I am happy that I have my life back and time to spend with the ones I love.
I am beautiful. I base this purely on my school photo; the best one taken in 27 years!
I am thankful for having this experience.
I am a better person because of breast cancer.
I am looking forward to where this journey will continue to take me.

There is so much to do and so many others to help.
