My name is JoAnn White and I’m 54 years old. I’m originally from Panama and I currently live in Palo Alto, CA
I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October, 2015. But when I found out, I was not shocked because I have a cancer family… So I faced the reality quickly and started taking care of it right away.
I feel ok most of the time but I have days I feel very weak and just want to stay in bed. My family is a great support… My cousin, Drina have lost a few family members to cancer over the past 3 yrs. She tells me that I’m a survivor who kicked cancer in the butt! I’m still going through my fight but I’m not going to let anybody down. I’m a survivor!
Underwater portrait experience was so cool!! I never got to do anything like this in the past so I got some advice from my cousin, Drina, who just did an underwater maternity photo shoot with Erena! I really felt relaxed underwater and I was calmer than I thought I would be. I didn’t swallow any water!!! ahaha. Erena was wonderful, she made me feel really confident and comfortable. I believed in myself I could do this and I did it!! We had so much fun!… My body was so relaxed that night and I slept like a baby! I usually wake up having a body ache and discomfort on my breast and arm but I slept through the night 🙂
