On August 29, 2016, I had what I thought was just a routine mammogram. I got a call a day later that it was abnormal. I returned for more tests and a diagnostic ultrasound a few days later which revealed a lump in my left breast and one in my armpit in a lymph node. On September 12th I had biopsies done at St. Vincents Hospital (See picture above). On September 14th I received the news that I had breast cancer. I have invasive ductal carcinoma grade 2. My lyphnoid tissue also is involved by carcinoma consistent with nodal metastasis. I do not know the grade yet. Michael and I will use this site to keep everyone up to date on my treatment. You can also send me a message through this site.
