How Biking Helped Me Through Treatment

Whether you are newly diagnosed, are in active treatment or completed treatment years ago, breast cancer affects how you feel inside and out. You have to cope with the emotional strain of the diagnosis and the physical challenges of treatment, as well as the stresses of daily life. Even though your diagnosis may be similar to another person’s, the way breast cancer impacts your life is unique, much as the activities that help maintain your quality of life are unique. Today’s guest loves biking and quickly found that maintaining that activity throughout her treatment helped her feel like herself, her most happy and capable self.

After a 10 year long history of yearly breast ultrasounds, biopsies and MRI’s, and a lumpectomy for a suspicious lump in her left breast, Sara spoke to her surgeon to weigh the pros and cons and ultimately decided to take charge of her own health by having a prophylactic double mastectomy at the age of 27. She is one year past her reconstruction and has never felt more comfortable in her skin or secure about her health. Sara, welcome to the show!
