1. Hi, I’m Amanda. I’m 35, I’m a veterinary student, I’m obsessed with animals, and I have breast cancer.

Hello! Thanks for being here. I wanted to start sharing in this space so that people who are interested in following along on this journey have a place to tune in whenever they want to, and so I have an outlet of sorts to help my own brain stay on top of things. I also hope that sharing my story can help to bring awareness around breast cancer in young women and provide support to anyone else who may be experiencing the same or a similar diagnosis.

A few quick things about me for those who don’t know me well: I am a lover of all things dogs, the ocean, EDM, hiking, and travel. I have spent the last decade pursuing my goal of becoming an aquatics and wildlife vet, and I have the best family and friends a girl could ask for. My boyfriend and I spend our free time hiking with our 3 dogs, dancing the night away at Red Rocks, or enjoying travel, good food, and friends. My perfect day is spent on the trails or underwater with sharks.

I can’t promise that this will be all that interesting or entertaining- honestly, it might even be depressing or boring at times- but I’ll do my best to be myself, put out there what I can, and hope that it helps others (and myself) understand this process a little bit better.

Thanks for being here and for all your love and support. It takes a village, and I truly couldn’t get through this without all of you rooting for me.

Hi! I am Amanda, a 35-year-old vet student in Colorado. I am here to share my journey through Stage 2 breast cancer and keep those I know and love (and those I don't even know who are interested in following along) informed along the way. Thanks for being here with me.
