Maritza’s Story

Sep 15, 2020 | Survivor of the Week

On November 8, 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 2 grade 3.  After finding out it was genetic braca 2 we found it had spread to my lymph nodes and I had 17 lymph nodes removed.

In January 2018 I started chemo and in August 2018 I did radiation.  In April 2019 I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer stage 2. I had surgery and am still waiting on doing radiation.

I have 3 kids ages 11, 9 and 3.  It’s hard because I have a lot to take care of at home, but I have to be away from them for 2 weeks when I have treatments, but God is big and I’m still here fighting.
