My First Week of Chemotherapy (breast cancer)

My First Week of Chemotherapy (breast cancer)

On December 21, 2021, I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. My treatment plan begins with 8 rounds of chemo. This is my first week of treatment. To get a 1 year supply of Vitamin D + 5 individual travel packs FREE with your first purchase, go to https://athleticgreens.com/eamonandbec

After receiving my diagnosis, my team of doctors devised a treatment plan that will give me the best chances of beating breast cancer at 31 years old. It all begins with 8 rounds of chemotherapy. I will receive bi-weekly infusions which (if all goes according to plan) will bring us into May of 2022. Our hope is that the chemotherapy will attack all of the cancer cells that remain in my right breast and kill any little cancerous cells that may have metastasized throughout my body. Unfortunately, there is no real way to detect how well my body is responding to the treatment as I go through it but I will continue to meditate and focus my energy on healing.

I want to take a second to thank you all again for being on this journey with us. We can genuinely feel the love we are receiving worldwide and know that it is a crucial part of our healing. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers 🥰⚡️☀️ 💛

    Round 3 of chemo for triple positive BC for me this week. Working on that patience and acceptance (it’s TOUGH!). You will get through this Bec, and you are making such a huge difference in sharing your story to educate (and save!) other women. Wishing you comfort and strength for the rest of your treatment

    It’s always amazing to see what human spirit is. I’m watching the story of a couple I barely know, from a country I’ve never been to, and yet I’m joining an army of followers with hundred of messages of support and good wishes. This is literally larger than life. You guys are NOT alone in this journey, and I’m hoping the best from Chile, South America.

    I’m balling my eyes out watching you go through this!! You have such courage to post your journey online. I’m sorry Eamon can’t go into the hospital with you.

    My mom passed away from breast cancer 25 years ago so this hit home for me! Stay strong Bec 💕

    So proud of you guys and I am obsessed with Osos’ loving, healing energy. I started to tear up when he was laying on you, Bec, and giving you all the doggy love. They’re so intuitive and healing and I really am so glad you have both Eamon and Osos there to support you and love you. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys 💜✨

    I can’t imagine anyone watching this and not feeling so inspired by you guys!
    Keep it up,everything is going to be alright!

    You can do this. I’ve been living productively with active cancer for five years and still going strong. Reach out if you need any ideas. Prayers to you guys!
