Living With Breast Cancer – Margaret-Ann Fugich

Margaret-Ann Fugich

Margaret-Ann Fugich
Diagnosed: Age 41
Cancer free for the past two years; NED
Now: Age 43

“I am a very outgoing person who loves to spend time with family and friends. I sing in my church choir and love to cook/bake! No cancer in my family.”

Inspirations: “God and faith. I cried a lot [the night I found out I had cancer]. While my husband went down to get me some tissues and water, I prayed to God. ”

Advice to new patients: “Find inspiration that will keep you positive—music, letters, poems, faith, church or whatever. Lean on your family and friends.”

How I’ve changed: “It has so much changed my life. This year was the first time since walking three years in a row at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure that I participated in the Survivor walk. As I was walking, I never really acknowledged myself as a person with breast cancer…One woman in the crowd said as she was clapping ‘we do this for you.’ Then it hit me…wow this was for me!”

What I’m proud of: “How one life can touch so many.”

What I wish everyone knew: “How much breast cancer really effects everyone—friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc.”
