It is really hard to write this since it's about me. I have decided to use this forum to keep everyone updated about my new journey.
I have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer in both breasts.
Nutshell: This cancer is stage I and II. This is great news as my prognosis is the best I can ask for! Treatment: Bilateral (Both) Mastectomies and reconstruction surgery - I do not have to have radiation therapy. I will know after surgery if chemo is on the table.
I have been through a lot of testing and initial doctor visits and I have quite few more consults to get through in the next few weeks.
Support: I have a great network of friends and family that are already on it! The train has left the station and we are working out all the necessary details as we get farther down the track for what I am going to need along the way.
I promise you will be updated frequently! Right now I am asking for prayers, well wishes and positive energy. It is really hard already to update so many people with so much information, especially when I am just digesting this myself.
