AM: What lifestyle changes were you forced to make or refuse to make during your fight?

MJ: I was forced to slow down and appreciate all the beauty around me. We take so much for granted, I’m happy just to wake up every day and not be in pain. I refuse to stop living life, it’s really easy to fall into depression.

AM: Who was/were your biggest supporter(s)?

MJ: My biggest supporters are my mother and my oldest sister. They both live a distance away from me but have literally dropped everything whenever I’m in need of anything. My close friends and other family members also play a major role in helping me to fight this disease.

AM: How has your fight against breast cancer impacted the person you are today?

MJ: I feel like I have a better understanding of my purpose in life. I haven’t changed as a person but my perspective on life has changed. I still love to do all of the things that I enjoyed before I discovered I had breast cancer. I also feel an obligation to share my story and educate other women about the disease in hopes that they will not encounter it and if they do they can have a better understanding.

AM: What advice or encouraging words can you extend to others who are in the fight against breast cancer?

MJ: My advice is to trust God, love and embrace yourself, and fight with everything in you.

AM: Are there any links to support pages that you would like to share?

MJ: I have cancer, cancer doesn’t control me!
