Hi,
I'm glad you found us, but am very sorry to hear of your recent diagnosis. I know how shocking it is to get news like that. No time is a good time to find out about cancer, but right before Christmas is a particularly hard time.

I was just diagnosed in July so I well remember those feelings of shock and waiting for test results. Have they told you what type of breast cancer you have? HER2 positive? Triple negative? There are all different types and the treatment varies depending on your type. Have you talked with the Medical Oncologist yet? Sometimes chemotherapy is given before surgery. Breastcancer.org is a good site with lots of information.

I have a nursing background, but when I got diagnosed, I realized I knew almost nothing about cancer in general and breast cancer in particular. I had a lot to learn. I wish you the best. This is a supportive team, and I hope you take advantage of the support here and elsewhere as you go through this journey.

Kay from Tennessee

I just found out that I have breast cancer as of 12/23. I have two growths. After one more biopsy the actual surgery will take place. I'm concerned as I have both Barrett's Esophagus and rheumatoid arthritis. I feel secure with my surgeon. I know so much research is being done.
I'm very optimistic.

I am on my way to better health!

Today is 3 years since my surgery. I was diagnosed with IDC stage 2, no lymph nodes. I had a lumpectomy, chemo, and radiation. We moved across the country this year so just established with a new doctor. I really need to lose my belly fat and I was off to a great start until this week of Christmas, but I am not discouraged, just more determined. I wanted to join a team and hopefully make some new friends who share my goals and experiences. Looking forward to joining team goals and getting to know you.

Of course breast cancer does not define me, it is just something I went through. I have been happily married for 20 years, have 3 wonderful boys, and love Jesus with all my heart.
