Nina's Story

Updated: Apr 23

Breast Cancer has changed me so much. I’ve lived with Cerebral palsy all my life, then with lupus, which is hard already. When, I went for my annual mammogram after the shutdown from Covid, I thought it was going to be like usual but when they called me to come back, I knew something was wrong. I started crying, got my lumpectomy, four rounds of chemotherapy and thirty rounds of radiation. Through it all, I had my family, friends, the doctors and nurses to help me and West Virginia Breast Health Initiative to rely on. However, what changed for me is I’m not outgoing now, I don’t take pictures of myself anymore, but I know I have to keep going and that is why I am participating in the race. No one should do this alone, it’s hard and you should have people alongside you that can support and give you the strength to go on.
