My Journey

My name is Jessica Moore, I was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer almost 3 years ago at the age of 32. I was active and healthy, no family history and really no answer as to “why me.”  I had been playing basketball and was elbowed and noticed a lump on my left breast, and some bruising a few days later. I’m a nurse so I figured it will go away just give it time. A couple of weeks had passed and I decided I should get it checked. From the day I had my mammogram to the day I was diagnosed life seemed to be spiraling out of my control. I had been married to my amazing husband Matt for almost 5 years, we were focusing on starting our family, following our dreams and enjoying life. Being diagnosed with breast cancer was devastating enough, but hearing the diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer took the life right out of me, out of both of us. Devastation doesn’t even describe how we felt that day. MBC has changed my life in so many ways, but from the day my fight began I have been determined not to let MBC define who I am. I have started this blog to help others understand the fight I’m facing, but more importantly I hope to continue to inspire, be inspired and raise awareness for MBC. Even faced with the constant reminders of my diagnosis I seek to find the positive in everyday; “the best part of the day” and hope to inspire others to do the same.
