We’ve all heard of people who have battled breast cancer. Some of us may know of a friend, a co-worker or neighbor. Some of us may have a family member who has struggled through chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments.

But, the reality is that we can never realize what life will be like until we have to fight that battle ourselves.

Aliesha Schlaak (Britton) knows firsthand what it’s like to fight and survive a battle with breast cancer.

Wearing a pink hooded sweatshirt that displayed a breast cancer ribbon surrounded by the words “Fight Like A Girl,” sitting on a chair in her parents’ living room in Preston, Aliesha shared her journey of survival.

On June 12, 2010, she married the love her life, Craig Schlaak. Born and raised in Preston, the oldest of four children in the Britton family, everything seemed to be falling into place for Aliesha.

Aliesha said, “I never thought I was going to die, but I knew I had to tell my parents.”

She immediately called her parents in Preston, Neil and Linda Britton, and her siblings, and quickly realized she an incredible support system.

The Tough Days

According to Mayo Clinic statistics, HER2-positive has a 77.1 percent five-year survival rate with no reoccurrence. Now in remission, Aliesha beat the odds and won the battle, but it wasn’t easy.

On August 20, 2010, she started chemotherapy, participating in clinical trials until January 31, 2011. On February 28, 2011, she had surgery, in whic .....
