As we enter the busiest travel season of the year, and as I’ve been traveling more frequently lately, it’s a good time to remind those of you who are traveling while in treatment or with someone in treatment of the best way to travel with your medicines or creams.
I’m triggered and filled with anxiety every single time I walk through security at an airport from an incident that happened while I was still in treatment. I had completed chemo and radiation and was cleared by my medical team to fly again when I was stopped at security, treated horrifically, patted down, even though I told them I was a breast cancer patient, and had a port in my chest and even though my creams for rashes were in bags and handed to the agents.
At the time, I had a friend shoot a video of what was happening. Some of you may remember me as “that TSA girl”. CLICK HERE TO WATCH.
