A Huge Lump on My Right Breast

June 12, 2013

Lee en Espanol

I have been holding back on talking about something that has been going on ... Well, I noticed a big lump on my right breast and it hurt. So like always, I was quick with my health and made an appointment for a digital mammogram and an ultrasound that was done today. THANK GOD it was nothing ... just fibrosis ... many women have this! So what is my message? As with anything, with time and early detection, we can save our lives! Don't be scared of whatever the outcome can be and grab the bull by its horns ... that is what I do with everything in life! I cant let things be ... NEVER! I chose to live the best way I can live. I am very blessed and happy that it was not cancer ... but I was ready for anything and thought to myself 'whatever is meant to be, will be ... and I will fight like I always do.' Please, to all women out there, get your yearly Pap smears and mammograms. Doing this can save your life or put you at ease. love and light

-- feeling blessed

Time to Show My Face and Take the Stigma Away

Maria T. Mejia

I am a 37-year-old Colombian female who lives in Miami, Florida. I've been positive for 20 years. Although almost all my life I've been in long-term relationships with HIV-negative men, I am happily married to a woman who is wonderful and caring. We have been together almost three years and she is HIV negative. I have no children but we will look into having! I am an activist, a peer educator, a caregiver. I volunteered for the Red Cross in education for the Hispanic HIV community and also the American community. I was a pre- and post-test counselor. I have spoken in many conferences and done a lot of outreach in the community, especially in the schools for prevention and education. It is part of my everyday life to educate everyone I can on this subject. Being HIV positive is nothing to be ashamed about! We are strong women, and we will take away all the stigmas slowly but we have to open up.
