BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

So, I wanted to do a piece about Breast Cancer Awareness, but I think it’s best for you to read the journey of my BADASS SISTA (20 years strong we been riding) Shawand Marquez who kicked breast cancer’s ass! Shawand is an actress, dancer and AWESOME MOTHER! Now I am going to stop bugging her up and let you read her words yourself, so you can understand yourself why I am a huge fan of hers……

 

GOOD AFTERNOON…TODAY IS OCTOBER 9TH… AND EVERYTIME THE 9TH ROLLS AROUND MY MIND STARTS GOING

IT HAS BEEN EXACTLY 2 YEARS & 4 MONTHS TO THE DAY WHEN I WAS AWOKEN UP FROM #DoubleMastectomy & WAS OFFICIALLY CANCER FREE AND BREASTLESS

IT HAS BEEN A CRAZY EMOTIONAL JOURNEY…THERE ARE ALOT OF SCARS I HAVE EMOTIONALLY, BUT THESE ARE THE ONES YOU GUYS CAN SEE… I AM GRATEFUL TO BE ABLE TO HAVE #LifeAfterBreastCancer WHICH BRINGS ME TO MY NEXT THING…

IN A COUPLE WEEKS IT WILL BE ALL ABOUT MY LIL SIDE KICK… BUT I WANTED TO DO THIS FOR MYSELF & OTHER WOMEN WHO MAY HAVE HAD SURGERIES & C-SECTIONS LIKE MYSELF AND MAY HAVE STRUGGLED WITH THEIR BODY IMAGE…

THIS IS ME AFTER ALL THE THINGS I HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS IS ME… YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU BEEN THROUGH… I AM STILL FUN, BUBBLING, SEXY AND BEAUTIFUL WHILE WORKING ON WEIGHT LOSS & RAISING 3 KIDS & TRYING TO BE THE BEST WIFE & MOM/ STEPMOM EVER …. YEAH, I HAVE MY DEPRESSION & CRAZY ANXIETY ISSUES & MOMENTS BUT I’M GETTING BETTER EACH DAY…

SO LET ME REINTRODUCE MYSELF…( AGAIN)LOL
