Cancer Story The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico helped me when I was here to have my surgery, also providing me with a room and with assistance with gas, so they’ve been a great help.

Well, according to the doctor I probably had cancer for a couple of years. End of January, beginning of February I was feeling a little sore under my breast. I did a self-examination and found a lump. When they did a biopsy it turned out to be positive for breast cancer. I had to do six rounds of chemo and now I have to do six weeks of radiation five days straight for six weeks. I worked as much as I could until August, obviously having to take a lot of time off due to the chemo, and with the effects of the chemo on my body I wasn’t able to work.

The Cancer Foundation for New Mexico helped me when I was here to have my surgery, also providing me with a room and with assistance with gas, so they’ve been a great help. It’s going to be an ongoing process so I’m here to put up the fight of my life. That’s pretty much my story.
