Stacy Miranda: A Thriving Breast Cancer Survivor

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sometimes, after a wicked storm, a rainbow appears. Stacy Miranda knows that firsthand. Six years ago she was battling invasive ductal carcinoma, triple positive breast cancer, an aggressive, fast-growing form of the disease. Today, she’s living her best life.Miranda was 34 when she discovered a lump on her breast and brought it to the attention of her doctor. That was the beginning of a journey that included radiation, chemotherapy, Herceptin infusions, and three surgeries. “Chemo hit me really hard, to the point that I was barely leaving the house and was dependent on others for even the simplest of daily tasks,” says Miranda, 40, who lives in Long Beach.  Her life was upside down. By the time she recovered from a second surgery, more than a year had passed and she was able to return to work, says the teacher at North Shore Middle School in Glen Head. Six months later, she was out of work again for a revision surgery. But, with gratitude, she says, “This past June, I celebrated my five-year cancer-free mark, which I call my ‘rebirth.’”The metamorphosis was painful. “At times, I have felt isolated and stripped of my youth, femininity, self-worth, and innocence of good health,” she says. “Just as with most cancer patients, I have had my share of dark days. I was a single woman without children.” Overall, she remained positive and grateful.  “Cancer has been one of my greatest teachers in life,” she adds. “While it doesn’t define me, it has certainly played a major role in molding me into the woman I am. I feel very lucky to be where I am today.”While being out of work did eventually make finances tight, she was fortunate to have support from friends and family, as well as extremely good health insurance. Miranda turned to organizations that help breast cancer patients. What sustained her during the most difficult period of her life? “I tried everything I possibly could,” she recalls. ”You name it, I probably tried it. Every stage of the journey required different coping mechanisms and means of support. I think a healthy mindset is always key, though. “It basically came down to gratitude and acceptance,” she continues. “That helped me stay positive and keep the faith that it was a temporary hardship that would lead to good things later on.”When she was overwhelmed, she went into therapy and leaned on her support network. Physical therapy was also helpful both mentally and physically.  “I went to the only breast cancer physical therapy program on Long Island, Full Circle Physical Therapy,” she says.To be sure, after the storm there is a rainbow. Although she has some residual side effects from treatment from her current medication, she’s now in very good health. Now, she says, “I am unapologetically myself, living from my heart, and committed to living life to the fullest.”Living as a cancer survivor presents challenges, but it can create opportunities. Miranda is involved in two nonprofit organizations: First Descents, a group providing adventure trips for young adults impacted by cancer, and Climb For Hope, an organization that raises money for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis research through adventure challenges.  Through all her adventures, such as whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, hiking and mountaineering, she has a new sense of empowerment. She has also shared her cancer story through public speaking engagements.  “If simply by sharing my experiences I can help others, I am honored to do so,” she says. “Giving back while also challenging myself has been so very purposeful and healing.” Miranda says her first fundraising adventure challenge was climbing the summit of Mount Adams in Washington. “When I reached that summit, I cried out in astonishment that my mind and body could achieve such a feat,” she recalls. “From climbing the mountains of breast cancer to the mountains of the Earth. I went from barely being able to walk down the block to climbing the second highest peak in the Pacific Northwest!”last_img read more

Aguero escape no surprise for City

first_imgManchester City striker Sergio Aguero was not likely to be banned for his tackle on David Luiz, assistant boss David Platt believes. Aguero will not face retrospective action over his two-footed challenge on the Chelsea defender in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final victory at Wembley. With referee Chris Foy having awarded a free-kick at the time of the incident, the Football Association considers the matter to have been dealt with. Some pundits have said the tackle warranted a red card but the FA does not like to ‘re-referee’ incidents which have been seen by officials, and Platt said: “I wasn’t surprised, based on the rules the FA has put in place if the officials have seen it.” The former England midfielder added: “There have been precedents set, and not only have precedents been set, they’ve actually gone on record and said if that’s the case – I wasn’t surprised. The rules are the rules. We don’t make them up, we adhere by them.” City manager Roberto Mancini has felt his team have suffered from some poor decisions this season, most notably when captain Vincent Kompany was sent off against Arsenal in January. The defender’s red card was later overturned on appeal. Platt has dismissed a suggestion that luck has evened itself out. He said: “I don’t know if it’s luck and whether we’ve had it. What is luck? I am not sure. It is a situation that has gone. I am not surprised he has got off. They are the rules, the officials saw it.” Playmaker David Silva, who missed Sunday’s game at Wembley with a hamstring injury, has all but been ruled out of Wednesday’s Premier League match against Wigan and is more likely to return against Tottenham this weekend. Platt said: “The game on Sunday was a bit too early for David. I think if we had pushed we probably could have got him ready for tomorrow evening but it would still be a risk. I think we will probably be pragmatic about it. We will see how he feels today but I think we’ll probably give him a full week’s training before the game at the weekend.” Right-backs Micah Richards and Maicon are both back in contention after knee injuries. Midfielder Jack Rodwell, sidelined for the past month with the latest in a series of hamstring injuries, is also in contention. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Premier League spending hits £1billion for season

first_imgTransfer spending by Premier League clubs this season has surpassed the £1billion mark for the first time, according to Deloitte. It may have been a quiet start to deadline day on Monday, but total spending in the whole of the 2015-16 campaign has already reached an eye-watering amount. Deloitte estimates that £130million has been spent so far in the January transfer window, which takes the total sum for the season beyond £1billion for the first time in history. Dan Jones, partner in the Sports Business Group at Deloitte, said: “We’ve seen Premier League clubs again use the January window to invest significantly in playing talent. With a day left, the total gross spending this season has already reached £1bn for the first time.” Newcastle have been the biggest spenders of the January window so far, bringing in the likes of Jonjo Shelvey, Andros Townsend and Henri Saivet for a combined total of almost £29million. The Magpies are expected to make further additions to their squad before Monday’s 11pm deadline, with West Brom striker Saido Berahino top of their wishlist. Newcastle spent £46million last summer while Manchester City parted with over £150million to sign Kevin De Bruyne, Fabian Delph, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi to help their title charge. Manchester United also spent over £100million on six new signings and Liverpool invested almost £80million in new players, although most of that money came from the sale of Sterling to City. The likes of Norwich, Bournemouth and Sunderland have all spent over £15million in the current window, which highlights their determination to stay in the Premier League in order to start reaping the rewards from the £5.136billion TV deal that kicks in from next season. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
