Dyess airman shares the story of her battle with breast cancer

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB) - For many, a cancer diagnosis can stop them right in their tracks. In a way, that's what happened to Staff Sergeant Danielle Galich, but throughout her battle, she's never lost sight of getting back to what she loves.

It's been a little over a year since SSgt. Galich first heard her diagnosis: she had stage two breast cancer. She says that's when doctors told her,"Because you're so young, we're going to hit you with everything we've got. We want to make sure this doesn't come back. And because you're young and you're healthy, we know you can handle it."

They certainly did strike quickly, with six rounds of chemotherapy, a surgery, and thirty three rounds of radiation. Galich remained determined throughout it all, but missed doing her duty.

Still sidelined, she says, "It's hard to not be out there with them to help. But I'm holding down the fort here while they're doing their thing. They know and I know that once that time comes that I can get back into it, I'll be right there with them."

Despite the struggles, Galich has learned from her experience, and those are lessons that she'll never forget.

"Because it was a constant... Having to bounce back from each round, and surgery, and radiation, I know now there's really not that can come in my way that I can't bounce back from."
