Breast Cancer

Being that October is breast cancer awareness month I have decided to write about my journey. In August of 2011 during a routine appointment, my physician discovered a lump in my right breast. He wasn’t over concerned with it, but sent me for a mammogram to be sure. Two days later I had my mammogram and immediately sent to down to have an ultrasound. When the radiologist personally came into the room the after the ultrasound I knew something was wrong. He advised me there was a suspicious mass and I needed to see a breast surgeon. That was the day my whole world was turned upside down. Within a week I saw a breast surgeon and set up for multiple tests. My tests revealed I had Stage 2, Grade 3 ductal carcinoma. I was devastated. I was a 36 year old wife and mother of an 18 month old daughter. How does this happen? Without hesitation I quickly made the decision to move forward with a mastectomy followed by chemotherapy. I never looked back or wondered why me, I just moved forward. It was a rough road at times, but I continued to move forward.

I can now say I am 4 years Cancer Free! I now share my story with those who have been recently diagnosed to help them through this long emotional journey. If you or anyone you know has recently been diagnosed, I would be happy to speak to them. Email me your contact information at [email protected] and I will be happy to reach out.
