Breast cancer survivor encourages women to get checked
Women in the Northwoods should go to the doctor often to make sure they are in good health.

The month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Breast cancer survivor Amanda Engstrom recalls her initial reaction to the shocking news.

"I was very scared when I found out I had breast cancer. I didn't know where to begin - how to tell my family, how to tell my son," said Engstrom.

Engstrom explained that going through this process can be a roller coaster of emotions.

She says the toughest thing was dealing with the treatment.

"Probably going through the chemo and losing your hair. But in my mind I kept telling myself if I kept working, I could get through this journey," said Engstrom.

Engstrom encourages every woman to get a check up and look out for any possible symptoms.
