A lil about me…

Hi, I’m Alexis and I’m a 33 year old New Jersey transplant living, laughing, and loving life in Maryland – where I share my home with my husband of 7+ years and our adopted beagle. I consider myself a fun, healthy person in my early 30′s that got hit very unexpectedly with breast cancer in November 2010. Almost 3 years later, I’m ecstatic to say that I’m a survivor! In my free time, I love to cook, run, bike and most importantly spend time with my family and friends.

A lil about the blog…

Most of the time I think that if I can’t laugh, organize or plan my way through something, I can’t manage it. This blog is my experience with breast cancer -basically my way of laughing at and managing everything. I initially documented my journey so that I could easily keep my friends and family up-to-date on all my tests and treatments. Since finishing all of my treatments in July 2011, the blog has morphed into more of a celebration of being cancer free and living my life to the fullest. So, you might see some random blog posts not even related to breast cancer.

I hope that my experience can give other breast cancer patients and survivors hope for the future and inspire women to live healthy full lives. I truly believe that something good will come out of all of this!
