On September 1, 2023, at the age of 33, I was diagnosed with Triple Positive Ductal Carcinoma, a type of Breast Cancer that is reactive to hormones. The doctors explained it is treatable, have a plan in place, and are optimistic about the outcome. So no need to fear the worst! ❤️
As someone who has been relatively healthy up until this point and understood little about cancer, I wanted to share my experience in hopes that it helps others going through a similar journey and raise awareness. Breast Cancer can affect anyone, not just women, so please be sure to do a monthly breast self-exam and have any suspicious lumps checked out by your doctor.

Thank you to everyone who has offered support in many different ways, it has meant the world to me. As the diagnosis has affected my ability to work consistently, if you’d like to offer monetary support during this time you can either donate to my Paypal or StreamElements. While I don’t have a proper wishlist yet, funds will be going towards travel costs to appointments, groceries, and cute head accessories for my bald head 🥺
Please refrain from offering any medical advice, as well meaning as it is. I trust the opinions of my medical team and will be following their treatment plan, thank you!
