I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Breast Cancer) on April 4, 2016. On April 18 I was told that I am "triple negative". This means the tumor cells lack the necessary receptors, common treatments like hormone therapy and drugs that target estrogen, progesterone, and HER-2 are ineffective so I will likely be treated with Chemotherapy. I visit with the breast surgeon tomorrow and we will discuss my treatment options.
I will get through this. I have a great support system in my family and friends. Mostly, I've been watching how strong my sis has been through her treatment for the same awful disease. Tammy and I have always been competitive. Now we're both fighting the same enemy. We WILL win and we will beat it!
