    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My mother discovered her left arm pit (lymph nodes) were swollen while we were at our family reunion. She told me once we returned, I checked it out and noticed the swellen and was able to feel the lump in the left breast...me being the "techie" of the family, i was able to diagnose her on my own. But was still shocked and dismayed when i received the phone call from my mom on 6/29 confirming our worst fears. My mom was/is in great shape, eats healthy and worked out 5 days a week prior to being diagnosed.

    Standard Chemo regimen or Phase 2 Clinical Trial

    Decision Point

    We also looked into a second opinion with another Oncologist and hospital affiliates...
