I was diagnosed with stage 1b, grade 2 IDC HER2-/ER+/PR+ breast cancer on 9/17/19. My double mastectomy is scheduled for 12/20/19 and we won't know until after the tissue is sent for further testing whether or not chemo will be part of my treatment plan. I'm currently on a hormone therapy, taking Tamoxifen to stop the cancer from feeding on estrogen and growing, and I'll be taking that pill for at least the next 5 years. 

My intention is to use this site to keep family and friends updated in one place, although I do plan to post updates on Facebook, too. We appreciate your support and words of encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
