Inspiring: Harris Co Deputy Continues Working While Battling Cancer & Chemo


From KHOU:

Brittany Buchkar is a single mom determined to work through chemotherapy...
Last April, doctors found cancer in a lump on Buchkar’s left breast. The cancer grew fast, Buchkar said.
First, she took four rounds of chemotherapy through a port in her chest. The drug nicknamed “Red Devil” gave her flu-like symptoms, Buchkar said. 
The second chemo treatment gave the deputy nausea and caused her hair to fall out.
Still, the woman who grew up dreaming of being a cop and helping people like her dad refused to miss work until June. By then, she needed a double mastectomy. She took time off and accepted light duty after surgery. 
Buchkar is now back on patrol and preparing to work through another round of chemotherapy later this month.
