From the venue:
A one-woman stage play about breast cancer, the treatment and living life to the fullest
About this event
My name is Raquel Hill, and I am a four-year and counting breast cancer survivor.
I was diagnosed with stage 2A, triple positive, invasive ductile carcinoma.
Stage 2? this means I caught it early.
In stage 2, there was positive activity in one of my lymph nodes;19 were removed.
Triple positive, refers to breast tumors that are ER-, PR-, and HER2- positive.
Triple Positive is an aggressive type of cancer and usually requires aggressive treatment (chemo+radiation and maintenance medication)
Invasive ductal carcinoma is cancer (carcinoma) that happens when abnormal cells growing in the lining of the milk ducts change and invade breast tissue beyond the walls of the chimney. - these abnormal cells were in my left breast
I was 48 years when I received the diagnosis that changed my life!
My life was starting to turn positively; before breast cancer, I briefly experienced homelessness, but that is a story for another time.
I had a career that I loved, found the cutest little house, and life was good, but cancer.
So I wrote a one-woman stage play about the journey.
This one-woman stage play takes you on a journey from the discovery of the lump, the decision about treatment, and loss from head to toe.
That one phone call, “You have Invasive Ductile Carcinoma,” changed my life and sent me into a tailspin; all I could think of was a sea of pink, and at that moment, I could not breathe.
I said out loud I am not wearing pink ever! And the story was born. FCKPNK, U, and I are left out.
FCKPNK is Raquel’s personal story; however, it affects people on many levels, covering; mortality, body image, relationships, and mental health.
