It all started one day, when I felt a node in my left breast. I thought it was something transitional but as months passed that nodule was always there. I started to do check controls and after some days I had the answers. It was a big and bad tumor. My world trumbled in a second, I cried all my tears, I wondered why. I was with my parents who were devastated form that sentence. They hold me strongly and they said to me that we could do it together. That words melt my heart, The day of the visit with the surgeon, in the hall there were some women telling their stories. In a corner I listen to the story of a young mum with a beautiful smile even after all the troubles. The day of surgery, I thought to that mum and promising to myself that I would have changed the entire book of my life non only some pages. I took all my courage and strength because I wanted to climb that mountain, I wanted to win. I faced chemo, the hair loss, the tiredness, the therapies. A hard path that I faced with smile. A battle I won and that made me understand that prevention starts by knowledge of the well-being of our body.
