So happy to celebrate my 26th birthday in India! So grateful to be alive and still dancing in the gardens of the Taj Mahal! Shortly before my 23rd birthday, I first felt my breast tumor. Shortly after my 23rd birthday, I first felt the sternum pain that I later learned was the breast cancer metastasizing to my bones. Despite this very grim prognosis, my fantastic medical team has made it possible for me to keep dancing.
I treasure every day and every moment that I feel well enough to dance. 108 American women die every day from Metastatic Breast Cancer. Please pray that my cancer remains stable and that a cure will soon be found.
