    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    My journey started with my second mammogram at age 40. I know that the xray tech saw something because I could see the starburst from across the room. She did a spot xray right then and there. I wasn't worried. I knew it was going to be something benign. Then I went for a MRI. Still wasn't worried. Then I went for the stereotactic biopsy. When I was on the table it became all too real that this could actually be something. I got the offical diagnosis two days before my 41st Birthday.
