My Breast Cancer Story by Lisa-Ann Machesi

My world was rocked on December 2nd. The pain I felt, the shattering of my heart and spirit was like a wrecking ball through a stained-glass window. Shattering in a million little pieces. In three little words, my entire world turned upside down and an entirely new journey has shifted to survival mentally and physically. I’m not sure where to go from here. I must rely on others now to guide me and help me something I have never needed to do my entire life. I feel helpless. It brings back the memories of people I loved the most in my life, who are gone too soon. This will not take me now, but I know it will forever be moving forward, attached to me like never before. And so, the journey begins.
