In May 2019, I was diagnosed with Stage 1, HER2-positive, infiltrating ductal carcinoma (IDC)  breast cancer after a tumor appeared on an annual mammogram exam. We quickly got the ball rolling, and the tumor was removed June 5th. My wonderful surgeon reported that the margins around the tumor as well as my lymph nodes were clear of cancer. I am now in the process of undergoing several appointments and exams before treatment begins. Treatment will include chemotherapy and radiation as well as herceptin treatment. My family and I hope to use this site to keep our friends and family updated as treatment progresses since it can be very overwhelming to respond individually to all the love from calls and messages. Any and all words of support and love on this website will make this journey so much easier and keep me smiling while I kick cancer's ass!
