    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Surprised, since It has not been in my genetic lines. My husband and I both went into a search to catch up with the huge learning curve we had in front of us. I am grateful for his support and the support of family and friends. This surprise has caused me to reevaluate my future choices. In that respect, I hope to enjoy time with my family and friends, to laugh and play whenever and for as long as I can! I hope that for those who read my post, also!

    It is working very well and is implanted under my arm. I can hardly feel the 3/4 " needle being inserted.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Follow the guidelines on rest and diet and medicines! Love having a Breast Health navigator who tells me "it is OK to call about any concern". I need to be told and encouraged to do that, so getting her advise on some of my issues has been really, really helpful!!! Thank you Natalie
