Most of you are aware that I've been diagnosed with Stage 2 cancer, Grade 3. The invasive tumor was ER positive (10%), PR negative, (0%) and HER2 negative by FISH. Don't ask me to explain exactly what this means, but for my friends with medical knowledge, this will make a lot of sense! :) The size of the tumor was 3.5 cm x 1.5 cm x 3.3cm mass and it was present in 1 of 6 lymph nodes. It is an aggressive form of Cancer cell, therefore the treatment is also aggressive and strong.
I'm trying to digest it all in baby steps, one process at a time. For now, I have chemotherapy treatments through August 29th. The First 4 treatments are 2x month and the drugs are Doxorubicin (adriamycin) and Cytoxan (cyclophosphamide) Then they begin every week for 12 weeks and the drug being used is called Taxol (paclitaxel).
The recommendation from that point forward is another 6 weeks of daily Radiation. After these steps, it will be determined how to proceed from that point forward.
My goal is to stay busy and focused on work, life, family and friendship. I am going to keep my daily life and routines as normal as possible.
With the overwhelming outpour of love and support, I know I will be just fine, better and stronger when this is over. You are all part of my Tribe. You are all part of my Warrior Team and Spirit. I Love you all and am so grateful to have such a caring group of friends in my life!
With all my love,
