Angela’s treatment plan includes Faslodex shots every month, Xgeva (denosumab) shots every month to help with bone strength and an oral medication called Ibrance (palbociclib), which she takes for 21 days at a time.
The disease that first graced its presence in her life in 2003 as “non-invasive” had again and again invaded her body and changed her life, but Angela refuses to let breast cancer own or define her journey. Angela is determined to be an inspiration for every cancer patient.
She really dislikes when people tell her, “Keep up the fight.” She isn’t fighting; she is winning. Although she looks happy and confident, the fear that cancer will consume her is real. But she won’t allow it to, and wants to inspire others to do the same.
Angela has represented and spoken for breast cancer survivors at New York Fashion Week, on Good Day Charlotte Fox 46 news any many other events and platforms. She is also the African American Ambassador for the Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) Project of the Count Me In Initiative.
In Her Words: Live Life Now
Generally speaking, I feel good. I am blessed for every waking hour, for every single day. I may get tired, I may be achy, and I know I can’t do all the things that I used to do. At the same time, I am leading a life filled with joy, filled with goodness. I know that I can inspire and empower other women with my story and acts of kindness. I hope my legacy will be one of service that encourages others to do good for humankind, being a light in the world. I help people. I go to conferences. I meet amazing individuals; I fill my days with good things and good thoughts.
Today, . I live with Metastatic Breast Cancer. I tell you to Live Life Now in order to live to the fullest, because you do not know what tomorrow will bring!
