This past month has been a rollercoaster.   At the end of September a found a large lump in my right breast.  Of course it scared me so I made an appt with a doctor who referred me for a mammogram and ultrasound.  On October 18,  my mammogram and ultrasound came out “suspicious” and I was sent for a biopsy a few days later.  I knew it was cancerous when the radiologist told me she didn’t like what she was seeing but we would wait for the biopsy results.  On October 25, the radiologist called me and let me know the 3cm mass was cancerous and she would be referring me on to the surgeon and oncologist.  I also found out that day that I was stage 2b with lymph node involvement(meaning it could spread anywhere else in my body. Also the cancer was Triple Negative, an aggressive cancer with less treatments available than other breast cancer.  The appointments started fast and the ball was rolling.  Chemo would start November 14th.  This is the start of my journey.  Thank you to all of you who are sticking by my side.  I love you all!
