I have always thought of myself as a pretty tough cookie and breast cancer has tested my strength more than anything else, and to be honest, my emotional strength the most. It seems that there is a finish line for the physical treatment… My surgeries are done, my scars are fading and my body is healing. But I am forever changed because of cancer. There were (and still are) many evenings when the tears would come and the fear would overwhelm me, but Mr. P was always right there. He has weathered this crazy storm with me and I know I could not be where I am today without him. You have been strong enough for both of us, Steve Preston and you make me believe I can do anything. I love you, Mr. P.
So many people’s lives are touched and changed by breast cancer every day. I am thankful for all the women that have walked this journey before me and created organizations like Forge, so we never have to walk alone. Lauren Roberts and Forge came into my life many years ago as a friend and a client. My job was to help them be the best they could be and be strategic thinkers. Little did we know that I would soon be reaching out as a newly diagnosed woman that needed to talk. For that, I will always be thankful. Thank you, Lauren, Janet, Claire, Jinida, Alaina, and Samantha for your kindness and support.
Today, I am part of the Infirmary Health System team and live in beautiful Fairhope, Alabama. Mr. P and I have been married 2 years and on Christmas Day of 2020 we welcomed our newest addition to the family… Tallulah. She is a beautiful black Labrador that I have been dreaming of having for years.
