stories of survival
I was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer in January 2002. Doctors originally thought I had early stage cancer. But less than a month after my lumpectomy, I started having back pain, and a scan showed the breast cancer had spread to my bones.
I was devastated and couldn’t really talk or read about it for several months. By May 2002, though, I was still alive and more comfortable with the diagnosis. I wrote my first Birmingham News column about my situation on Mother’s Day 2002.
