Your Story

I am 45 years old and found out 3/25/2012 that I have ductal carcinoma in my right breast with 2 suspisious nodels in my left...I had a PET/CT as few days later that showed that it has not spread (THANK GOD!) ...I had a bilateral sentinal node biopsy done on 4/12/2013 and will find out if it has spread to my nodes...If it has that will bump me up to a stage 2...I am having a bilateral mastectomy done 5/1/2013...After that I will find out if I need Chemo/Rad...I am very scared but I also know...I WILL KICK A**!!! ...I pray for each and every one of you that are faced with this.

Well today is May 26th and I had my double mastectomy on May 1st and boy has alot changed...I went from a stage 1 to a stage 3....% tumors and 5 malignant nodes....This is not wht me, my family of Dr's were preprared for. I pray that I have enough strength to make it through this journey....I pray for all my pink sisiers!!!
