Beauties of the Month - LaTasha P.

Beauties of the Month - LaTasha P.

I found a lump in my breast when I was 34-years-old, after completing my monthly self-exam. At that time, I had a 9-year-old & a 4-year-old son. Initially, I was told that I just had very dense breasts, but I knew something was wrong. I had been a teacher for 12 years and when school started in August, I was very drained and lethargic by the time I got home. Because of my age, my doctors did not want to send me to have testing beyond my initial mammogram because they thought I was too young.

I was persistent and found a doctor that was willing to send me for an ultrasound, which led them to find two tumors and on October 6, 2011, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Invasive Breast Cancer. I was in a fight for my life; I had many rounds of chemo & surgery, but I didn’t give up! I am still here today healthy and happy living my life to the fullest! I make it a point to remind women to do their monthly exams and follow up if something does not feel right.

How has being a Brown Sugar Babe helped you through your journey?

Being a Brown Sugar Babe has been awesome! When I was not feeling well, I was able to look forward to receiving my box with all the awesome, empowering goodies inside. I have made some great connections and have been able to encourage other Babes who are going through cancer treatment.
