    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I just found out I have stage 2 breast cancer, I meet with a surgeon on Friday the 13th. I'm so scared, I don't know what is going to happen to me and I have a four year old little girl and a seventeen year old son and I'm not ready to leave them yet.

    Waiting on BRCA Results

    Clinical Trial

    I have no insurance at this time, I had missed the sign up time at work, my doctor requested for my mother to take the test instead and at this time we are waiting for the results to schedule surgery.

    Radiation

    My surgery went well, they did find a VERY small speck of cancer in my lymph nodes but my doctor is confident that radiation and kemo will take care of it. I will start radiation in 3weeks.
