I am a breast cancer survivor, advocate for breast cancer patients, and will always be a fighter for myself and others! In January 2015 I was diagnosed with breast cancer E+P+Her2 Equivocal. My team decided to treat it as Her2+. Sixteen rounds of chemo, 1 year of Herceptin, 28 rounds of radiation, bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction, and hysterectomy. Here I am, in 2017, still fighting as a lesion was discovered at my femoral neck. I was sent to a specialist in early August, he admitted me to the hospital that evening and put stabilizing devices in the hip/femor the next day. I didn't have time to argue or get scared. A biopsy was done at the time of this surgery it showed E+P+ and I am still waiting on the results of the Her2. So now I am recuperating from surgery at home. I have physical therapy and soon will start radiation and possible chemo. Another chapter in this journey.
