Michele Baker / Detroit 10.4.19

 I want to be able to give back to say thank you to everyone that has helped me and be there for someone else who finds themselves in a similar situation. That is why I am happy to be dancing, so that someone else can receive the same kind of help that was provided to me when I desperately needed.

About Michele D. Baker

My name is Michele D. Baker and I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on 12/3/2017. I was hoping when I went to the initial meeting with my Oncologist that I would be told that they made a mistake and that I didn’t have it. Unfortunately I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer and I was put into treatment immediately. To be honest I was extremely angry and scared. Angry that this was happening to me and scared that this was happening to me. My worst fear was that I would turn into the people you would see in the PSA commercials regarding cancer, frail and thin looking. I didn’t want to be hooked up to a machine and have poison pumped into my body, I didn’t want to lose my hair and I didn’t want the stigma that comes with people knowing that you are sick.
Thankfully I had a great support system in my Family and Friends and the staff at Karmanos Cancer Center in Farmington Hills where l went for treatment, with their help I was able to get through all my treatments and today I am proud to say I am cancer free. Had it not been for their help I don’t think I would have been able to make it through. I want to be able to give back to say thank you to everyone that has helped me and be there for someone else who finds themselves in a similar situation. That is why I am happy to be dancing, so that someone else can receive the same kind of help that was provided to me when I desperately needed.
