Our journey began when I found a lump in my right breast and my life starting to change immediately.  I went to my ob/gyn  doctor Aug 3rd and the next day to get ultrasound.  Next was the biopsy on Thursday Aug11 for 3 needle to 2 lumps and a lymph node.  Appointments had already been moved up.  It was long weekend but Monday morning the 15th is when I was diagnosed with invasive mammary carcinoma in 2 lumps and the lymph node.  Fast appointment move up again to see surgeon. Next is more tests with echo scan on Thurs 18th  and CT scan and bone scan on Monday 22nd to help personally  determine my best treatment.  After that I  will be meeting with  oncologist on Tues 23rd.
