Welcome to the team!

Good Luck!

I too got the same diagnosis Jan 2013. Just had my one year mammogram and got the all clear! I had a lumpectomy and radiation only as well. Don't be surprised like I was when I had to go back for a 2nd lumpectomy because one of the margins didn't come back clear from the first. It is nothing unusual but I didn't know that at them time. Freaked me out!

If you have any questions or just need someone to talk to let me know.

Welcome to the team!

My prayers are with you; it sounds very hopeful that yours was caught early.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Sounds very familiar to me too, Had the same diagnosis 2 1/2 years ago and just received news of a "normal" mammogram from this past week. Now I don't have to have a mamm again until next year!!! Think positive. Will be praying for the same outcome for you. Hugs. Connie

ZACHERYSMAMA: Sounds like a repeat of my life 2 years ago. I was diagnosed at age 43. I am doing fantastic now. If I can answer any questions, please let me know. I'll be praying for you. emoticon

Keep smiling!!

I'm going to echo Sylvialynn - don't go it alone. Family/friends are important, but so is a support network of women who either have gone through breast cancer or are going through it along with you. We're here if we can help in any way to answer questions or just be an outlet when you need to vent. Whatever happens, don't let your cancer define or limit you - you are so much more!

The words, "You have cancer." Is scary. Sounds like you have a caring and good doctor. Reaching out to others and building a support network as you have done by joining this group will be helpful. Ask your doctor if there is a local breast cancer support group or Cancer Support Center. A lot of how you handle your diagnosis depends on your personality. You may be a private person and not want to share your journey. Or you may want to reach out to any one who will listen. The American Cancer Society has online groups and you can link up with others with similar cancers and treatment plan. Once you have the lumpectomy and have a treatment plan, things settle down. I found the breast health navigator at the hospital where I had my surgery was a wonderful resource. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing. Also feel free to ask questions.

I am Donna 69 years old and live in St. Louis. MO.

Just found out last week that I have breast cancer. I had a biopsy on 3/20 got the call 3/25 that it was cancer. I went in to see her on 3/27. It is DCIS noninvasive, I will just need a lumpectomy and radiation after.
We have set the surgery for April 11.

Teach me the glory of the cross I bear; teach me the value of my thorns. Show me that I have climbed closer to you along the path of pain. Show me that, through my tears, the colors of your rainbow look much more brilliant."
