I am Cat and I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in 2018 with Stage 2B Invasive Ductal Carcinoma and In Situ breast cancer. My journey to get to where I am now has been one of self-discovery, immense fear but also great love. Facing my own mortality, and what cancer does to a body, I’ve broken down more times than I’ve held my head high. But when I do find that space, that feeling like I’m comfortable with this new me, I’ve been able to heal. After three surgeries, 4 rounds of chemo and incredible bodily loss, I’ve done things I thought I would never do. I’ve shown other women how to embrace their post cancer bodies; I’ve survived through moments I did not know were survivable. I’ve conquered unimaginable grief to get to where I am today. Although breast cancer was and is one of the most insurmountable obstacles I’ve faced yet in my life, I know that if I put my scars out there, my real, raw story, I’m helping another woman face those obstacles. We are never alone in our fight against what may take us.
