Return to Happy Feet Dashboard

Hello Everyone! I’m Rachel. I’m 41 years old and from Illinois. This will be my third time participating in the Happy Feet Program. Last time I had a lot of health issues going on and couldn’t attend all the zoom meetings like I did the first time I participated in the program. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone in the zoom meetings this time and excited for all the speakers. A little more about me. I was diagnosed with stage 4 bilateral inflammatory breast cancer in November of 2021 with metastasis to my spine, a few ribs, and lymph nodes. I did 4 AC chemo infusion. 12 Taxol chemo infusions. Then on Christmas Eve of 2021 I suffered a stroke due to the chemo. I recovered mostly from that with occupational therapy. Although, I still have issues with using my right hand. I’m currently on oral treatments for my cancer now. Ibrance, Letrozole, and monthly Zoladex injections. Sorry for rambling but I like to introduce myself completely and my story and my lines of treatment in case there’s someone else in the group going through the same thing.
