Hi! 👋🏽 I’m generally a positive person who loves to laugh and sing. I’m the wife of Mathias and mother of toddler Max Danger. We live in Wicker Park in Chicago and enjoy walking. I love black, pink and anything shiny! Please feel free to post pics of us as memories and things you think are funny (e.g. Memes, jokes, funny podcasts and show recommendations)
My husband and I are both Consultants, he for Accenture and I work for EY (Ernst and Young). We truly appreciate what our teams and clients have done for us these past weeks and in the coming months.
The diagnosis “story” - In mid-January 2022, I noticed my left breast felt like it was about to let milk down… I squeezed nothing came out and I thought nothing of it. Fast forward to early Feb 2022, I had carried my son on the left side for an extended period of time and later that night when I lay in bed thought I pulled a muscle from my left underarm down to my top rib (hint hint look up lymph node network). Then around valentines, noticed my left breast had a lump and firmness to it. Long story short, I got a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound which led to biopsy. On Thursday, February 24 I received the call… Breast Cancer.
The cancer - I was diagnosed with ER positive, HER2/neu positive Grade 2 breast cancer with lymph node involvement. Specifically, invasive ductile carcinoma. As of 3/9, they believe it’s Stage 3.
The treatment- I will be posting my treatment journey on this site. But in general I’ll be undergoing infusions every three weeks (chemo for 6 cycles and anti-bodies for 1 year). After the chemo, I’ll be having a short wait for my body to heal then undergo Surgery. Then radiation, then medications. The details of this is tbd.
