#mybcjourney

“On January 15th, 2021 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 triple-positive breast cancer. Unfortunately, I was not shocked. In early October I found a lump, I had lost my job from the pandemic and no longer had insurance, was barely making ends meet. I signed up for insurance that month but it would not start until January. In hindsight, I should have paid out of pocket. By the time of my breast exam, my breast had tripled in size, nipple discharge, dimpling at bottom of the breast. My doctor quickly got me in for a mammogram, biopsy, and ultrasound. When they called with the news, I just said “ok thank you” numbing myself a bit to what was to come. I’m currently undergoing chemotherapy before surgery, the three masses found need to be shrunk first. My mindset is fairly healthy most days, but this journey is not easy. Each day I try to find ten things that bring me joy. One moment, one breath, one day at a time.”

We’re so inspired by your stories at TalosApp. We’re developing a portrait series that tells short stories of women who have been touched by breast cancer. If you’d be interested in sharing, we’d love for you to submit a photo and a quick paragraph of your journey to maria@aitalos.com
