My name is Rachel and I am 25 years old. My mother beat ductal breast cancer in 2019. Dealing with that was very difficult to handle because I didn’t know what to say. Then I began to have breast pain in January 2020 and I knew I had dense breast but they have been monitoring it and they said I was fine. Well at my last appointment on March 13 I begged my doctor to do a Mammogram because I just knew something was wrong with my body. I got the results back and I was told I have to have 2 biopsies completed on March 17. I was so nervous to get these biopsies but I knew I needed to follow through with it. On March 19th I got the news I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. My heart dropped instantly and I didn’t know what was going on. I blanked and didn’t know what to say. First thing running through my head was “why me?” How much more do I have to go through before I can show you God that I’m strong. I went through an emotional/physical abusive relationship and I finally got the strength to the leave the relationship and follow through with the divorce in 2018 after 7 years. I am so scared but I don’t know what to say or do. I am so used to being everybody’s back bone now I know I will need them to be my backbone. I’m doing my best to stay strong and not think negative but I find myself thinking all negative things. I keep wondering I’m only 25 years old.. is my life over now?
