Life rarely goes as planned and 2021 started with a curve ball and new challenge; a breast cancer diagnosis.
A lump found in November initiated a series of mammograms, biopsies and scans that led to an official diagnosis in early February. Two different kinds of cancer; one side positive, positive, negative and slow growing and the other side triple negative which is more aggressive and can only be treated with chemotherapy.
Scans revealed the cancer was present in lymph nodes, but the rest of the body scans were negative. Stage 3.
Janet is being treated at Loyola; Cardinal Bernadine Cancer Center and chemo treatments are at Marjorie Weinberg Cancer Center at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital. Chemo began Thursday, March 11th and will continue weekly for 24 weeks, followed by surgery and then radiation.
