Breast cancer is a horribly wicked thing.
It is a thief. In addition to the horrendous side effects that often accompany treatment, it also strips you of your dignity, your humanity. It robs you of your joy, your livelihood, your relationships. It takes away the ability to connect; it pillages your finances and it destroys who you once were.
If you don’t believe me, ask anyone who has gone through it. Or anyone who has loved someone who battled it.
