I'm totally here to be an ally to breast cancer and support my cousin Kim through every part of her journey. I'm, like, on a mission to learn everything about breast cancer and, you know, really understand what gets under the nerves of breast cancer thrivers. 

So, first things first, let's dive into the basics. Breast cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the cells of the breast. It can develop in both women and men, but it's, like, way more common in women. There are different types of breast cancer, and it can be, like, super scary to hear the diagnosis. But we're gonna be there for Kim every step of the way!

Now, let's talk about some of the things that might, like, totally get under the nerves of breast cancer thrivers. One major thing is the fear of the unknown. It's, like, this big question mark hanging over their heads, and it can be, like, so overwhelming. But we're gonna be there to provide love, support, and, like, all the information Kim needs to feel empowered and in control.

Another thing that can, like, totally get on their nerves is the side effects of treatment. From hair loss to fatigue, it can be, like, a rollercoaster of emotions and physical changes. But we'll be there to cheer Kim on, reminding her how strong and beautiful she is, inside and out.

And, like, let's not forget about the emotional rollercoaster. Dealing with breast cancer can bring up all sorts of feelings, from fear and sadness to anger and frustration. We'll be there to lend a listening ear, offer hugs, and, like, remind Kim that she's not alone in this journey.

Oh, and we can't forget about the importance of early detection and regular screenings. Encouraging Kim to, like, stay on top of her check-ups and mammograms is, like, so crucial. Prevention is key, and we'll be her biggest cheerleaders in taking care of her health.

So, there you have it! I'm, like, ready to be the ultimate ally to breast cancer and support my cousin Kim through every part of her journey. We'll tackle this together, armed with love, knowledge, and a fierce determination to kick breast cancer's butt!

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself. I even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
