P1000615Hello. My Name is Dymelle Marie. On December 26th the day after Christmas, I was officially diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. I tested Her-2 positive. However I have been told that this is a very treatable form of breast cancer. I will have to undergo Chemo, Radiation, a year of Herceptin, and then take some pill for five years.

I was lucky to have found it in stage one. I thought cancer was this dirty little secret. Even if you had it, you were never supposed to talk about it. At first I felt so ashamed. I thought I was going to die. I live in New York without any family and I thought that I was going to be all alone in my journey.

In the beginning, I wouldn’t tell anyone. Then I began talking because I needed to. The more I talked, the more I found out how many people’s lives had been effected by cancer. My friends were effected, their children, a woman sitting next to me on an airplane, some of my clients.

I remember constantly running into this man and I used to always think, “He is so mean.” Finally, I sat down and talked with him. Turns out he had cancer too. You see sometimes in life, you never know what a person is going through. So the next time someone upsets you, give them a smile, a hello, heck even a hug.

I call myself the Cancer Free Cutie because I picture myself as cancer free, cuter that ever, and loving and enjoying every moment in life. You never know when it is going to through you a curve ball.

Napoleon Hill Quote, “What the mind of a (wo)man can conceive and believe, (s)he can achieve.”

I believe that I will be cancer free. If you have some time, follow me on my journey. Laugh with me, cry with me, feel free to chime in and inspire me. I hope to inspire you as well.

Love life, live life, in this moment, in this second. I don’t know anyone who has come back from the other side and last time I checked you only have one. Go live it!

The secret is out. It is not dirty word.
