How to begin? A short flashback: I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Oct. 28, 2008: invasive ductal and upon more testing with invasive lobular just a week later. DoubleMammyWhammy I called it. I had bilateral mastectomies and chemotherapy followed by five years of Tamoxifen. In 2014, the treatments were done. Two years of carefree living and now another breast cancer diagnosis.
