Thank you for stopping by my site. My name is Jennifer Beem, I am 46 years old: Wife to Rick (26 years), Mom to Trae(22), Hailey (19), Reagan(18), and Emily (12). I discovered a lump on my right breast on Saturday, January 13, 2018, and just 2 short weeks later was diagnosed with breast cancer: invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) grade 3, stage IIB, ER/PR+, HER2-. I underwent oncoplasty on February 12th and it was thought that my nodes looked clean . The pathology report determined that not to be the case. A second surgery “axillary node dissection” is scheduled for February 27th, which will remove all my axillary nodes, followed by chemotherapy, physical therapy, and radiation. I have a long scary road ahead. I appreciate your prayers and support.
