Cori Lango

My name is Cori Lango and I am 40 yrs old. I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer January 21, 2013. It has been a whirlwind since the diagnosis. It was an aggressive mass they found, which made their decision for treatment aggressive as well. I started with chemo not even 3 weeks after I was diagnosed. It was doctor appointment after doctor appointment for the first couple of weeks until that first treatment, and I think they were some of the scariest moments for me. I was left wondering after each test if they were going to find other cancer within my body. I am extremely happy to say that this mass was only in my one breast and I seem to be clear in all other spots. I was in chemo until the middle of July when I opted to have a double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery. I knew I still had a long road ahead of me with many ups and downs. With all of this also came many expenses, bills, a dwindled savings account and high credit cards. However, I have the most amazing support and love from family members, friends, and co-workers that I feel like I can do anything; and beating this cancer was surely one of those things! I am cancer free now and by spring of 2014 I am positive that this cancer will be behind me and will just be another memory of my past. Now I think about the wonderful future ahead of me, and I will continue to pay it forward, the kind of generosity and care that so many have brought to me. Thank you for listening to my story and I cannot thank Send Me On Vacation enough for helping so many women out during a time that is so incredibly difficult.
