I am Angela. I was 46 when I discover my breast cancer, with a simple touch of my hand. I didn’t wait a minute and I took all possible dates to do routine diagnostic exams. It passed two terrible months from that day full of fear of what would have come. The doctors said I was right, I had a tumor. From that moment onward it was a continuous race: I immediately had surgery, 20 cycles of chemo, with all its terrible effects.

Now, it have been passed 14 years and still I remember my parents’ words saying me everything would be passed.  Even if it’s true I fell anxiety every control I make, I live with the real consciousness I won  but I live my life as better I can and now I’m a member of Cuore di donna association. I believe that being a part of a group of women who lived the same experience can give strength to all of us who win and to other who will face the same difficult.
