When I returned to the workforce after having been a busy “stay at home mom,” instead of returning to bookkeeping, I decided to work in Brooklyn, in a medical office. There I developed a lot of knowledge by reading medical journals. My mom had developed breast cancer when I was 23. I’ve been reading and accompanying the development of breast cancer treatments since then. My mom did not have a breast surgeon, and did not go to a good hospital.  She died of metastatic disease. With my additional knowledge, my aunts went to breast surgeons and to Sloan Kettering which was known to be excellent for breast surgery at that time. They lived long lives.

In March 2017, my mother was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and my life inevitably changed from that point onwards. Looking back, I can almost draw a line and split my life into two parts: the first part, where I never really knew much about cancer and how it can affect your life, and the second part, where a completely different lifestyle consumed me, with the impact of cancer on relationships, work, and finances.

Johanna’s Story: When Cancer Comes Back

Johanna’s Story: When Cancer Comes Back

You are thrown underwater. The words “You have cancer” become a dark sea that tows you down, down, down, until friends or family or a kind doctor or nurse pulls you up for air. At the surface, you gasp for the stage and grade of it, you gasp for the treatment plan. There is no time to float. Then despair might hit, and you’re back under, to be revived again and again, bit by lung-filled bit, as the days and appointments pass.
