My Story by Madaline McKay

A few words from the heart: In honor of this video as inspiration to embrace possibilities, self-care and faith to support the process as well as your journey.

On my journey with breast cancer I both embraced and fought at the same time. I embraced the diagnosis and all the technicians that I interacted with on this journey, homemade cookies, gift bags and spirits were showered upon them. I fought fatigue, nausea, body changes, depression, no pity party allowed. I embraced my routine of work/responsibilities, co-workers and spousal support was unanimously uplifting. I embraced laughter it really is the best medicine, change of diet (plant based). To all fellow survivors/patients: Be fearless, don't let fear keep your health prisoner.
