Welcome to my CaringBridge. I am using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement💓
My story begins November 2017. I was at a routine yearly checkup when my primary doctor felt what to be a lump in my breast. I was sent to ultrasound that day. The spot in question was looked at but my results came back as normal fibrous tissue. Through December and January I closely monitored the spot. It was growing, and fast. I already had an appointment with my primary doctor again in February so i waited it out. Upon seeing me I was sent for another ultrasound and referred to Sanford's Breast Clinic. To my surprise and almost disbelief I was told again the ultrasound showed nothing (lump in question is now approximately tennis ball size). These same images were sent to the Breast Clinic. Because they too saw nothing on image I would wait out my 8 weeks before the next available appointment. On April 2nd 2018 I met with the Sanford Breast Clinic where they preformed a biopsy. On April 4th at 12:15pm the call came in. It started with "I wish I had better news, but I'm afraid it is cancer"
This is my story and battle with Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Grade III Triple Negative and how I plan to DESTROY it!
