My name is Miranda and I’m 37 years old. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33, even with no family history or genetic markers. My diagnosis was a complete shock; I, like many other young women, believed breast cancer wasn’t something someone so young could get.  After 14 months of treatment and procedures, and followed by hormone therapy, I’m still in the process of healing and finding myself again.  My short term goal for my health and wellness is to continue to grow my stamina and stay as active as possible. I still get easily fatigued, but I have been challenging myself to get outside and walk more consistently and to attend ROW team practices more regularly. My long term goals are to build a strong lifestyle of fitness and to advance in skill in the sport of rowing. I hope to compete in more regattas and other races in the next 5+ years.
