Review for Pink Warrior Angels, Copperas Cove, TX, USA
I was diagnosed on April 21, 2016, at 39 years old with Stage 2, Invasive Ductak Carcinoma. I was a single mother of a 4 year old. I was devastated. My biggest fear was my son growing up without me and not being around to see all the amazing milestones in his precious life. My son is my entires world! So I scheduled a double mastectomy as soon as my family could arrive to help after surgery. I had a double mastectomy on June 8, 2016. It was confirmed my cancer had matastised to a lymph node. I began chemo August 1, 2016 and completed October 3, 2016. My son gave me the strength to keep fighting. I have gotten married and my husband is my rock. He has helped get my son to school and played many roles assisting and making sure my son was the least affected by my illness. We are an amazing team. I've been cancer free since Feb 3, 2017. And I'm anxiously waiting for my 1 year cancer free anniversary... Pink Warrior Angels was absolutely amazing during my journey from sending mastectomy bags, pillows, activity books, head wraps, to anything I needed. They are a wealth of knowledge and support. They do amazing things for women who need the support of others who have been through this journey themselves. Having someone that's been through this and there to cry, talk or answer questions is such an amazing feeling as a warrior and going through the most challenging time of your life!
