I was diagnosed in July 2012. I had bleeding from my right nipple which prompted me to get my first mammogram. I am 39 years old. I ended up having a surgical biopsy that showed invasive breast cancer, ER PR neg and HER 2 pos. In August 2012 I had a double mastectomy immediate reconstructive surgery. In October 2012 I started weekly taxol and herceptin. I finished taxol in December and will continue herceptin until October 2013.
I have 2 little boys that have been my driving force to fight this fight everyday. I will beat this, there is no other option. :)
