I am using this site to keep family and friends updated in one place.  I appreciate your support, words of encouragement and above all prayers.  Doctors say I have a long-road ahead of me but I am determined to be not only a Survivor but a vessel to help other women who are hit with what feels like a "ton of bricks"! 

On Feb 28th, I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC), though it may be considered one of the most common forms of Breast-Cancer,  in that moment "I felt alone".   I also felt numb.  I literally thought the Clinician/Pathology lab had gotten it wrong.   Aside from feeling a lump I felt normal, how can this be?  That's just it, you're in shock, you're in disbelief, you think even after having a biopsy the results will be benign -- not in my case.   It really feels surreal, it's like time-stops which we all know it doesn't, it can't.   Then the other side of it comes to bare and you just want time to SPEED UP so you can get thru the treatment plan with success and a clean margin of health, your mind races but it all ends with a HEALTHY prognosis. 

Even those without tumors, don't know what tomorrow brings but I just pray that my {tomorrow's are many} and that this journey ends in VICTORY!
