I am 'running' this Race for a Cure in support of my dear friend Bridget. The very fabulous 'Dr. Bridget.'
Here is a little info on my lovely BG:
My name is Dr. Bridget. I am a 27-year-old cosmetic dentist living in, what I like to think, is the center of the universe; NYC. Graduating dental school at the ripe age of 24, it’s safe to say that I have an immense passion for oral health care and putting smiles on peoples’ faces.
Of the multitude of hobbies, passions, titles and characteristics that I use to describe myself, Breast Cancer WARRIOR is the last thing I could have imagined, though as of late March 2018, this has been added to the repertoire. Finding out that I have Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma at the age of 26 was not an easy pill to swallow. It seemed as though my world filled with smiles, social events, and designer shoes was slipping away, making way for hospital visits, surgical procedures and chemotherapy; not such a fair trade, I must say.
After the initial shock and fear subsided, I decided not to let the diagnosis take over or go into hiding. Instead, I came out to the world with my head held high; ready to fight like a boss; as I have with everything else in my life. I continue to work part time, live life to the fullest and chronicle my journey as I kick cancer’s ass in style!
By the time, we head for the races on September 9th, I will be finished with Chemotherapy, anxiously awaiting my mastectomy. I invite you all to join Team Dr. Bridget as we race for the cure, raising awareness and supporting everyone affected by this disease.
