Breast Wishes Foundation

Hello, I am a single mother of three beautiful children. Life was going good, I had three jobs I enjoyed working but when this hit I had to quit two of them. I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer April 2019. It was a shock considering I do not have a history of cancer in my family and I am only 33. I had an ultrasound and mammogram April 2nd, April 4th a biopsy, results April 8th, first appt. with both my surgical oncologist and my chemo oncologist April 11th, April 17th a port was placed and April 29th I started chemo. At the moment I have gone through four rounds with two chemo medications and now I am on the third round of a third chemo medication, which I will have 12 altogether with this medication. Basically got smacked with this in April and there's been no break for myself or my children.

We needed a break

I had planned to take my kids on a trip this summer but when we got the news that was out of the question. I know losing my jobs I should have asked for help with bills but I believe that this vacation was much needed. We all got to forget that I had cancer, the kids got to be kids again. Breast wishes was able to provide a fun filled two days at COSI and the Columbus Zoo. We were able to have a bucket full of fun and make memories this summer that didn't include something that had to do with my cancer treatment. I will never forget that they were able to provide the first time my two girls got to sleep in a hotel room. Honestly, I think that was my youngest favorite part :)

An awesome post about the flu vaccine from one of our Urgent Care doctors: The evening after getting my flu shot, I felt chilly and achy. Took my temperature and found it to be 101.1 F. It topped out at 102.4 F.

The flu shot did NOT make me sick. It did not cause the flu. This fever is my immune system in action. My body “thinks” I have the flu and is responding as it should. I’m making antibodies so when the real flu comes around later this year, I’m ready to fight it off quickly and effectively.

This common and short-lived inconvenience is much preferred over the real flu. Influenza kills about 1 in 1000 infected persons each year. The flu vaccine is our best shot at preventing this life-threatening illness!
