Clea Shearer shares powerful message
On May 20, Clea revealed that she had started chemotherapy. The reality star thanked the fans for the constant support while sharing more about how her family has been helpful through this all.
She wrote: “Today marked my first day of Chemo. As the day approached, I started sleeping less, worrying more, and even had one big tantrum last night that I can only describe as a child who’s next in line for a huge roller coaster, and last-minute screams, “I can’t do this!! Let me off!” No one was letting me off the ride, but everyone let me cry as long as I needed to. When I was done, I picked myself up, took a walk with the kids, and laughed at Sutton’s jokes. There’s no better medicine than a walk and a laugh.”
Clea revealed she has a “chemo bag” that is filled with blankets, snacks, and supplies for her 4 hours procedure. While chemotherapy can be hard on people’s mental health, Clea admitted she was going to be positive and live each and every day to the fullest.
The first time she opened up about her diagnosis
Clea, who is often seen as a ball of energy on the show, did not hesitate to share her diagnosis with the world. Taking to The Home Edit’s official social media page, the reality star revealed she had found a lump in the last week of February.
She further added that it took a lot of time for her to finally get an appointment. However, when she did, it was found that she had two tumors, 1 cm each. She further added that it was “aggressive and fast-moving.”
Clea admitted the initial reaction to the diagnosis was negative but she decided to stay strong and be positive as she battles breast cancer.
