On July 22, 2016 I was diagnosed with Stage 3A (T3N6M0) Invasive Ductal Adenocarcinoma (breast cancer). The subtype is Triple Negative. The 5cm tumor is aggressive and grade 3,  and has spread to 6 axillary lymph nodes. 

I will have 4 rounds of Adriamycin and Cytoxan and 4 rounds of Taxotere. It will be ever 21 days and should be completed sometime in February.

Following that surgeries will begin for the lump and the lymph node. The specifics for those have not been laid out yet and we are still waiting on the genetic testing results and the clinical trials to help make some decisions on the surgeries.

Thanks for the love and support from so many.
Cancer affects more than the one who has been diagnosed and I truly understand that now.
