    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago, but it is small (less than 2 cm) and early. It was not a huge shock because two of my mother’s sisters died of breast cancer. I have decided on bilateral mastectomy (not nipple-sparing). If pathology on lymph nodes is positive, I will also have radiation therapy. I am thankful that I have a plan in place, a great medical team, awesome support from family and friends, and good insurance coverage.
