"I never knew about metastatic breast cancer disease until my sister was diagnosed with it."
I would like to see more funding and more awareness for metastatic breast cancer.
I never knew about this disease until my sister was diagnosed with it. She is a strong single mother and it hurts me to know that she has to fight for her life on a daily basis. It’s been 3 years since she’s been diagnosed – she is doing really good with her treatments but it’s really scary to know that it could change in the blink of an eye.
We need more research so she can be cured and live a long life. She needs to be here for her children. She deserves to see them grow up and have families of there own. She is stronger than she knows. I am thankful for her.

I had a ruptured Appendix and laid in bed on a cruise ship in pain for 5 nights. I got off the ship and went into the ER and was diagnosed with an Appendicitis. I had surgery and was ready to go home when the surgeon told me the thing they thought was an abscess was a Signet Ring Adenocarcinoma.
