Before I write about this, I want to take the time to say thank you. Thank you to everyone who has been following my journey, who has sent me flowers and gifts, and for taking the time to read my blog. This blog was to help me get everything on my mind out, and if…

Dear Government:

I received this letter in the mail today, hoping the content of it would be good news. To my surprise, you denied my claim. I'm glad that my disability isn't "severe nor prolonged" enough for you. On your website, this is what you define as a disability: What we mean by "disability" To qualify for…

Days leading up to my surgery

On Friday, January 27th I met my oncologist. His name is Dr. Higgins from the Credit Valley Hospital. He is very nice. He told me more information from my tumour biopsy that I did not know of.- My cancer is Estrogen positive, Progesterone positive, and HER2 negative. This is all good news. This means my…

Tues. Jan. 24th

We received all my test results. We met with my surgeon and she went over my results. My blood levels were normal- so that was good. My mammogram and MRI were the most important. We were hoping that these two tests would show us more on the tumour and if it has invaded the surrounding…

Today

Discovery

When I found the lump.. I've been asked this question so many times, and I get mad at myself cause I can't fully remember. I can't remember exactly what date it was and I think that's what frustrates me the most. I use my phone calendar for everything, and I looked back and saw my…

Well my dooms day.. It's now the morning of Tuesday, January 10th, 2017. I had a busy morning- I don't know if everyone knows this, but I have had braces on for 10 months now, so that morning I had to go to my orthodontist to get them tightened. It was also the day we…
