The Friday after Thanksgiving I had a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound - and ultimately a biopsy - to diagnose a mass I had found earlier in the month. The biopsy and subsequent tests showed that I had breast cancer. I was able to schedule a lumpectomy quickly and had the mass removed just before Christmas. While I was able to start the new year cancer free, the tumor and test results indicated that I had an aggressive cancer that had just begun to spread to my lymphatic system (blood vessels) but not my lymph nodes (yay!). This page is to share updates as I complete treatment to help prevent a recurrence.
