Well there is never a good way to tell your friends and family when you get sick. But here I go. On March 2nd after extensive testing I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Triple Negative Breast Cancer. The Triple Negative means the 3 hormone receptors that are normally treated first with Chemo do not receive the Chemo so it doesn't work.
So between my Oncologist, Surgeon and a special genetic BRCA test they are working up the right plan to attack my cancer. This is just the beginning of my journey. I meet with my surgeon this Thursday March 23rd and on Monday the 28th, an appointment with an Oncologist at Texas Oncology in Houston for a second opinion to go with my Oncologist's opinion here in Beaumont. So a lot going on, hopefully next week there will be decisions on which direction I will be going in. Thanks to all the friends and family that already know and have been a part of my support system already. Don't want my story blown up on facebook so I thought this was a better way to communicate how things were going. Love Ya'll!!
