My name is Christina. I am a 39 year old mother of two wonderful, precocious boys, a wife & a breast cancer survivor. My stage 2B, Triple Negative and one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer accounting for just 10-20% of all breast type cancers came on January 27, 2006 following a biopsy. I have since had a mastectomy, undergone chemotherapy & been diagnosed with lymph edema. More importantly, I am forever an optimist. I have faced this beast as I like to call it with humor. I don't want to hide from these beautiful, and yet uncertain moments in my life so I offer my story, my humor and my battle as a source of hope, inspiration and defiance in the face of this beast we call breast cancer.
