On 12/15/2017 I got some unwelcome news, I was diagnosed with Stage 2A breast cancer. The MRI revealed it is on the right side a 1.7 cm tumor and 8- 10 lesions. There is no obvious chest wall or skin involvement and no lymph node involvement from the MRI. I am encouraged that we have discovered this early and by the many survivor stories that are shared with me. I told Ella God did not cause me to have this, AND we are going to watch what He does through this. Working with a great team of doctors: Dr. Robin Williams, breast surgeon at St. Thomas Midtown; Dr. Jamie Peyton, oncologist, TN Oncology Lebanon, TN (he treated mom briefly); Dr. Jason Wendel, plastic surgeon.
