Beth Sexton - September 2015
Wansley Ricks was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year in January. She does not like to miss work, so she scheduled her treatments so that it wouldn't interfere with her job as a victim witness coordinator for the Juvenile Court in Rockdale County, Georgia.
Ricks started the first of 4 chemotherapy treatments in May, which were each scheduled 21 days apart. On Wednesdays, she would take the day off to go in for treatment, then return to work when she was feeling fine on Thursday and Friday. On the weekends she was able to rest when she started to feel the side effects. Now, she is excited about her future and is noticing her energy level improving everyday.
“It would take me a good week to recover, but I would still come to work,” Ricks said. “(The doctors) told me if I could push myself, to push myself. I’m a strong person and had to keep going. It’s been a life lesson. It makes you realize the small things don’t matter.”
