Hi everyone, this is Lisa & this is my story. My story has been so overwhelming, and has been such an ordeal.

It's been a long road already but it's really just beginning. I have been diagnosed with Stage 3 triple negative, invasive ductal breast cancer in my right breast. The triple negative is one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer. So scary! There is more than one cancerous tumor in the breast which means I will need to opt for a mastectomy and will also need to be treated with radiation. I have already had surgery to place the port in my left shoulder so I am already on chemotherapy treatment (started March 2nd) to help shrink the tumors before I have to have the surgery.
