Rachel's Story

Just wanted to say hi to fellow cancer survivors. I just celebrated 1 year since my breast cancer diagnosis. At just 31 and a mom with 2 small kids it was definitely unexpected to find out I had breast cancer.

I made it through a tough year and now that I’m feeling better I just wanted to get the word out and help as many as possible. It’s so important for young people to be their own advocates. 3 different doctors thought I had a cyst, but I persisted, and luckily it was caught early. I still had to have a bilateral mastectomy and chemo.

I blogged and vlogged (made YouTube videos) during and after my surgeries and treatment. If you know of anyone going through breast cancer please send them my way if they have any questions or just want to chat.

In honor of Breast Cancer month I have a giveaway on my blog. Yoplait and Susan G Komen put together a nice gift pack of VIP coupons for FREE Yoplait Greek Yogurt, a pink leather journal and pen, and an awareness charm bracelet. In addition, Yoplait will make a $25 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® on behalf of the winner.

Have a nice day,
Rachel (Cha Ching Queen)
