This is frightening.
"When I came to in recovery, my surgeon was standing over me with a look of sadness and told me that he had to take out all of my lymph nodes."
That left Samantha Harris, who had the surgery after being diagnosed with breast cancer in May, waiting to hear for the results of the doctors' tests. A few days later the doctors confirmed that her cancer had spread.
Here's what she said:
"A few days later I got some good news. Thankfully, only one node was positive. Unfortunately, that usually means chemo."
Samantha, for her part, has stayed inspiringly positive despite the frightening possibility of chemo.
"I am scared by the prospect of chemo, but I know so many inspiring women who have gone through it and, as they told me, 'rocked it'. If I need it, I will take a deep breath and readjust my focus. Stay positive. When life deals you lemons, you gotta make lemonade!"
We love how she stays cool and calm under pressure. Chemotherapy would be a terrifying prospect for anyone, but we have a feeling that with her attitude - she's going do really good in her fight against cancer.
It's so important that she's kept on top of this, too.
We believe SO much in Samantha Harris! And we only have positive thoughts for the beautifully inspiring lady!
