My name is Adriana, but on social media I am known as Didi Eriksen.
I am married with my twin soul and we live together in Norway with our two wonderful children.
On the 26th of January 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, and on the same day the cancer was informed that its war with me was all but futile. I have God on my side and I never give up, so I will not allow my life to change because of a little (ball in my tit).5 days later I had my surgery to remove the tumor. So, I basically had breast cancer for 5 days. Guinness book of records here I am. LoL
Of course, I was sad, because I love my family and I did not know what to expect of the future. After the surgery, I had to wait 2 weeks to get the final answer, if I had metastases or not. Thank the Lord they did not find any. The cancer was in its early stages of development, so my chances where great.
2 days after my surgery a friend of mine sent me a makeup bag full of goodies, she lifted my spirits and spoiled me a bit. I was so happy when I saw all that makeup that I forgot about the cancer and started to create my first look. Of course, it was a big mess hahaha. I`m not a makeup artist, so I decided to watch some YouTube tutorials in the early hours of the day when I was home alone.
I already had an Instagram account, so I decided to post my looks there and share chemotherapy journey to the road of recovery. Through Instagram I meet a lot of wonderful people, God blessed me with a lot of sisters. All of them has shown me such great love and support. And that love has given me lots of strength.
I had my chemotherapy from March 6th to the 16th of August 2017. Believe me when I say this, chemotherapy is no joke! But tried my very best every day. I`m not Sir Elton John, but like him “I`M STILL STANDING YEAH YEAH YEAH”
On the 12th of September I start my radiotherapy, so your all welcome to follow me down that road as well.
You can find me on Instagram at @didi__eriksen__ , facebook and a little bit on YouTube hehehe, and lets not forget Snapchat.
I wish you guys a wonderful day. And never give up! There is always something positive to focus on. Just find your goal and dream on!!!!
With love Didi
