On January 17th, 2017 at 11am I received a call from the doctor that every women fears. The doctor asked me my location and told her I was driving. She asked me to pull over. All I can remember is the words "Mary I wish I had better news for you, We found breast cancer." I was told I have IDC breast cancer. It is a breast cancer that is found in the ducts of the breast. I stands for Invasive. The easy way of explaining in human terms is the the duct has broke open and is the surrounding tissue. The doctors are amazing. I was able to get into the Surgeon right away at 2pm. I see the oncology doc Tuesday and the rheumatologist in a few days. We have surgery scheduled for January 30th, 2017 at 8am. I will try to keep everyone updated here.
