Emotions regarding diagnosis

I felt terrified, so vulnerable, devastated and just completely overwhelmed! Being 6 months pregnant at my Stage 4 diagnosis in 2011, took those emotions to a level I had never experienced before.

And although those emotions have been there on some level since my initial diagnosis in 2005, I found an internal strength that I didn’t know I had and made a decision that I was going to do whatever I needed to do to be there for my daughter.
