The journey is a process of ups and many downs. However, the support of loved ones is immeasurable in keeping the hope and courage through those uncertain moments. This week we feature a wonderful story that we found on the National Cancer Institute Cancer Topics channel. Melanie Nix found out that she had breast cancer, triple negative breast cancer which is known to have high mortality rates especially among African Americans. Ms. Nix shares a brief part of her journey, one that we hope will encourage and inspire others to know that survival is possible.
While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
