Diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. Keeping positive and being busy helped
Hi. I’m Georgine. I’m 41 and in April 2018 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was triple negative and not genetic. I did 4 months of chemo and after opted for a double mastectomy with reconstruction. After surgery doctors cld no longer find cancer cells…yay. The most difficult part has been the reconstruction. The expanders are painful. I’m hoping once they are taken out and replaced with the implants that i get some relief. Painting has helped me a lot during this time. It keeps my mind occupied and I have been able to sell my art to help me financially since I haven’t been working. It hasn’t always been easy going through this but keeping positive and busy has helped.
