Sandy’s Story

April 26,2011 following my annual mammogram, I was diagnosed with advanced stage 3 breast cancer. After an ultrasound and biopsy it was suspected the cancer had spread outside the breast wall into the lymph nodes. Doctors suggested a mastectomy, aggressive chemo, radiation, two more surgeries and five year pill. I had a double mastectomy on May 11. The left sentinel node and surrounding lymph nodes were extracted and confirmed to be positive for cancer. Start Chemotherapy on June 8.
