    Clinical Trial at Stanford University

    Clinical Trial

    I love being part of a study. My health is being monitored by a group of specialists who wouldn't be following my care if I wasn't in this study.

    Bilateral Mastectomy or Lumpectomy

    Decision Point

    Decided on bilateral! I discovered I'm a BRCA1 carrier so it was easy to make that decision after knowing that.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    Finished treatment 11/7/13. MRI proves cancer is gone! I can't believe I fought cancer and won. Now I just need to try to gain some weight back. I am dealing with foot neuropathy and stomach issues but hopeful that in time they will both be a distant memory!
