    Oh No

    I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer a little over a week ago. I feel like my life has been tipped upside down. There are so many decisions to make. My head is spinning.

    Tests and decisions

    Other Care

    It seems like this cancer has a life of its own. I have had more tests and doctors appointments in the last month than I have had in the last five years combined. The MRI made my decision much easier. They found more cells in my left breast that could become cancer in the years to come and surprise they also found some in my right breast as well. Decision made: double mastectomy quick and easy. Surgery is next week. Kinda scary but I know I will be ok. Gotta stay positive
