Rosalyn’s Story

Site created on November 2, 2019

I can't tell you how many times I've heard "God doesn't give you anything you can't handle".  I must have faith in that statement.

On October 14, 2019 it was confirmed that I have Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in my left breast.  Mastectomy is necessary and is scheduled for Monday, November 18, 2019.  

I'm still in shock and am overwhelmed, daily, regarding this diagnosis.

The advise I repeatedly receive, by many different individuals, is that I NEED to stay POSITIVE.

I'm reaching out to you, my friends, to assist me with this endeavor and guide me through this particular confusing and surreal time in my life.

Journal entry by Rosalyn Foster

Greetings ❣️
So, the journey continues.   Basically waiting is the hardest part.  My Oncologist sent samples to California for Oncotyping a few weeks ago. The purpose of this test is to gauge the possibility of reoccurrence. Range is 0-100. The higher the number, the higher the benefits of chemotherapy outweigh the deterrents. I received a call from my oncologist yesterday informing me that my biopsy testing result was a 6.  He stated chemotherapy is NOT necessary.  I will be taking oral medication. Praise God.  Still unknown regarding radiology. My Radiologist wants to discuss my case with the board due to my particular situation being ‘unique’.  She, herself, stated that at first glance at all the provided information and test results, she would NOT recommend radiation. But, again, she said my case was unique and would be bringing it to the board. She’ll contact me after the discussion and a plan is in place.  Still taking it Day by Day.  Still overwhelmed. Still a surreal experience.  98% of the time I’m just ‘existing’.  I cherish the 2% of the time when I’m actually ‘living’.  I’m looking forward to seeing that ratio decrease and increase respectively.  Thank you all so much for the continued prayers, thoughts, and encouragement.  💕
