"The goon in me is what got me through two years of chemo, four surgeries, baldness, and countless meds. "
Prior to my battle with breast cancer, I was a relatively private person. Now I share my testimony with any and everyone who will listen, in hopes of being able to help someone. I honestly believe God chose me to educate, encourage and empower women about breast cancer and the importance of early detection.
If breast cancer is detected early, there are more available treatment options and a better chance of survival. Conducting a self examination four years ago to the month saved my life!
Mess in a Bottle has empowered me throughout my journey. There were times were I experienced anxiety and low self-esteem and Mess in a Bottle was right there with a message that spoke to me. My favorite MESSage is "I'm somewhere between Goon & Glitter". The goon in me is what got me through two years of chemo, four surgeries, baldness, and countless meds.
