After undergoing an MRI to more clearly define the type and size of tumor in her left breast, she met with Dr. Brackett, medical director of the Tidelands Health breast health program, to explore her options.
“He goes over everything with you so that you understand what’s happening,” she says.
Moormann underwent successful surgery with Dr. Brackett followed by five weeks of radiation therapy and 20 weeks of chemotherapy.
Through it all, she tried to stay upbeat and carry on with daily activities.
“I tried to keep it as normal as possible,” she says. “I took my daughter to the bus and met her at the bus after school every day.”
She allowed herself to cry on occasion, but tried to limit herself to 10 minutes.
“It’s too easy to climb into bed and not want to get out,” she says.
