Sandy keeps sharing her story in the hopes that women will take an active role in their care and regularly follow the self-check process. “I was first diagnosed in 2009. I was seven years cancer free when I found the lump myself for the second time. The chances of recurrence were less than 1% and even though I had a double mastectomy in my first diagnosis followed by hormonal therapy I still had a recurrence of the exact same cancer in the exact same place. This time around I had surgery again, chemo therapy, and radiation treatment – and I continued teaching my Zumba classes throughout this entire process. I refuse to let Cancer take my life and the things I enjoy away from me. I cannot stress how important it is for women to self-check on a regular basis. I found my cancer on both occasions.”
