Hello, my name is Erin
I'm 34 years old. On Tuesday, January 31, I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. The news came as a complete surprise and as you can imagine, we were devestated to hear the word cancer. The first 48 hours were by far the worst and nothing had even happened. I felt fine, how could I be so sick and not know it?
This is my journey, my own personal battle against breast cancer. I've decided to share my story, one of many in the war against cancer. Perhaps by promoting awareness and determination, we can make a difference. Courage and hope will be my own personal weapons; courage to fight and face each day head on; hope that one day I'll be able to say I beat cancer, I'm a survivor.
