    Money

    Oh No

    I have insurance but even with that I am 10000.00 in debt. That's without the surgery and treatment being added in. My husband and Ai are both retired but don't have that kind of money if we want to live.

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had a lumpectomy with 3 lymph nodes taken out. I had an invasive cancer I will continue on to chemo and radiation. I also have been fighting a breasted infection for a little over a week now.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I finished treatment in September and what a relief. I now will be taking tamoxifin for 5 years. I have a hugh fear of it coming back but I hope this will fade with time. God bless everyone who helped me through this journey.
