Cancer has always been part of my life.
My grandpa died of colon cancer when I was 13 years old. His brother and sister died of cancer in that same year. After that lots of people close to me passed away of Cancer.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 10 years and we had no luck.

In July of 2015 I went to see my doctor to do my yearly checkup and a week later one of his nurses called me and said with the coldest voice ever ” You have cancer. When do you want to come in?”.
I was so upset with what she said and the way she said it. When I finally saw my doctor he said it was not confirmed yet he needed to do more tests. A few days later he did a biopsy and confirmed cancer.
Since I live in Flagstaff Arizona I had to travel two hours to Phoenix Arizona to see the oncologist. When I went to see her she did tests and gave me 15 minutes to decide if I wanted to have surgery or take pills and hope it didn’t spread and didn’t guaranty I was going to get pregnant.

So I made the decision to have surgery. The cancer was the size of a peanut. I had a hysterectomy and was left with one ovary. Leaving me one ovary to me feels like they’re teasing me. Like you have eggs but you can’t use them.
I would go to see the oncologist every 3 months for two years now I go every six months. My husband and daughter (which was an SR. in high school) took my diagnoses very hard.
Before I left for my surgery I said bye to my loved ones. Because all I knew about cancer was death. My husband took care of me till I was able to get up.
Two more years hopefully and I can put this all behind me.
