Hello family and friends! As you may know on December 7th I got the official diagnosis of stage 2b or 3 triple negative metastatic breast cancer. This cancer is considered upper outer of my left breast and has invaded both axillary lymph nodes on that side. Fortunately, my liver, lungs and brain are clear of metastasis right now. Today, December 21st 2020 I begin my chemo journey. The plan is to do 6 months of chemo to stop this disease before having a bilateral mastectomy/hysterectomy. After 2 months of treatment we will check progress to assure chemo is working. If not, that day we will do a radical mastectomy and come up with a new plan. Tomorrow I will have a nuclear medicine bone scan to make sure my bones are free of cancer.
This is a lot of things all at once, but I am in good spirits. I feel good. I will update throughout this journey as often as possible. I am ready to leave 2020 behind! ❤
