Well, crack the imaginary bottle of champagne, that’s the end of my radiation. For the past two weeks, my chest has been getting radiated. Of course, it will continue to be ‘radiated’ for another couple weeks as the treatment has its impact, but at least I won’t need to go to the hospital and lay on the table… Read More

I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few days after my one year wedding anniversary. That was a shocker. After three years NED, cancer reappeared and pushed me to stage four. This blog captures life despite cancer. With international relocations, job search drama, fighting off apartment vermin, falling deeply in love and more. Life is challenging, but nevertheless inspiring and that’s what Bumpboobs is all about.
