About Sara Erzen

At 35 years old, and 21 weeks pregnant, and one week fresh from celebrating our first year of marriage, I stood in my kitchen with a pen and paper, as I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. On paper, my odds appeared challenging. 

At 26 weeks, on a cold December morning, I began dose dense chemotherapy, with baby on board- to save my life, and hers. We would continue through 4 rounds of A/C. In March, after 12 weeks of intense treatment, our beautiful daughter, Adeline Faith was born. She was a term baby, weighing over 8 pounds, with a head FULL of hair. I went on to have 4 more rounds of dose dense chemotherapy, a mastectomy, and radiation. 

Today, I have a head full of hair, and my kitchen is for dancing! I have a passion for helping others with our story, and am convinced Cancer was my vessel to reach others. Through all of this, my husband carried us. He’s my rock, my best friend, and I cannot imagine stepping through life with anyone else. November 6, 2018, we celebrate 5 years from diagnosis. Cancer isn’t a curse. It isn’t a blessing, either- but it empowered me, showing me that no matter what, I’ll never stop dancing.
