…suspicion arose from a routine mammogram. She never developed a palpable lump because of the location the cancer was found— in fact, she probably wouldn’t have even felt one until the stage was more severe.
However, the advantage here, is that my mom is keenly in tune with her body and diligent about her health.
Early detection saved her life.
Because it was caught at Stage I, it allowed for early treatment and improved her prognosis.”
“Since the diagnosis, we’ve gained a wealth of knowledge that no one ever really hopes to have to know, but is grateful that the information it is available if/when it applies. There’ve been some pretty miserable days witnessing all my mom has had to endure (surgeries, aggressive treatment, etc). But, she’s done so with the utmost style & grace, and is now, one year from the start, done with treatment; successfully on the road to recovery. She’s the champ!”

Will there be a ‘Are We There Yet 3’?
When asked if there will be a new installment in the “Are We There Yet?” series, Allen shared her openess for the project.
“I’m not opposed to it!” she stated. “I’m down for preserving “classics”, but, listen, after the year we’ve had so far, the classics have been a comfort. I hope to start using the experience I’ve gained during my hiatus, for different roles, soon. (I miss it!)”
“Here’s to feeling good, even if just for this moment, and to holding on to the promise of a testimony; that at some point, we’ll all be feeling even better. Love, Aleisha.”
We love you back Aleisha.
