I have lost count of the countless movies and series I have watched where a character suddenly falls ill and discovers they have cancer with only a few months to live. The typical storyline that follows includes the person using their remaining time to do things they have put off or spending quality time with their loved ones. However, this portrayal is not always accurate for those who receive a

On a sunny August afternoon in 2003, as I made my way back to NYC after visiting Savannah, GA, thoughts of my impending chemotherapy filled my mind. The doctors had recommended this treatment as a precautionary measure, and initially, I had worried about the side effects, including hair loss.

As a breast cancer survivor, I have embraced this title for over three years now, ever since I was declared no evidence of disease or NED. However, there are still moments when uttering those words feels surreal. Though my treatment has ended and I have completed my major surgeries, the impact of my diagnosis has undeniably shaped the person I have become on the other side of this disease. While

I recently opened my email and came across a health-related e-newsletter that I receive daily, although I can't recall signing up for it. The headline immediately caught my attention: Nelson Mandela's granddaughter passes away at 43. While I didn't know much about her, I felt compelled to click the link and find out what had happened. As I read the article, I learned that she had lost her battle

My aunt recently posed a difficult question - how should someone respond when someone is diagnosed with cancer? I struggled to answer because every cancer and individual experience is unique. People react to things differently, and it's hard to anticipate what might trigger someone. Since my own diagnosis at 21, I have often heard the phrase, You're too young for breast cancer. This declaration

When I reflect on the beginning of my breast cancer journey five years ago, I remember that I had put dating on hold to focus on my health. However, just when I thought I was ready to start dating again, I received the devastating news of my cancer diagnosis. At that point, my main priority became doing everything I could to survive. After finally receiving the news that I was officially declared

Walking into the chemotherapy infusion zone at my treatment center, I often found myself as the only Black woman or woman of color in the room. This was a familiar experience for me, as I have grown up in predominantly White environments my whole life. However, what was new and intimidating was navigating my diagnosis of triple-negative breast cancer, a term that had never crossed my ears until

Throughout my entire life, I have been surrounded by doctors. Growing up, I would often accompany my dad, who is a cardiologist, to his office or the hospital on weekends. While there, I enjoyed conversing with his colleagues in the hospital lounge and sneakily indulging in the abundance of snacks available. Additionally, my siblings and I would compete on the treadmill in my dad's office to see

One of the biggest challenges I faced during my treatment for breast cancer was learning to ask for help. As an independent person, it was difficult for me to let go of my self-reliance and burden others with my diagnosis. However, the demands of my treatment made it clear that I couldn't manage everything alone. Initially, I tried to shut out the world and handle things independently, not

Twenty years ago, I never imagined that I would be a 28-year-old bald woman. It was a reality I struggled to accept after being diagnosed with breast cancer. I found myself searching for ways to cover my bald head and maintain a sense of normalcy, although I'm not entirely sure what that means. Despite initially resisting chemotherapy, I eventually agreed to undergo treatment. As my oncologist
