Welcome to Mandi's CaringBridge site. On 7/13/16, I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma in the right breast. The approx. 1.5 cm mass was found during a routine mammogram, which was actually my first mammogram. Upon biopsy, the cells were found to be triple positive. Treatment consists of 6 rounds of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Treatment will last approximately one year. Good news is we caught it early and I feel confident I'll live a long prosperous life!
