To celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness month, I’m highlighting Breast Cancer Badass Chicks all month long. To kick it off, I’ve got Miriam Gnieski of Shrewsbury.
This past May, Miriam and her family were about to take a family photo when she discovered a lump under her left arm. She had always kept up with her mammograms and didn’t think too much of it, but she wanted to be sure she stayed on top of her health. So, she called her doctor and they discovered that, at 56, she was about to start fighting Stage 3 Breast Cancer.
Miriam has been undergoing chemo since July and will do her final treatment next week. Through it all, she has juggled work, her three kids and her husband. Miriam’s best message to anyone out there is to listen to your body, and to not be afraid of traveling into Boston to get some world-class treatment.
