    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): I had a lumpectomy to remove my primary tumor. It wasn't really necessary but the doctor said it was an option if I wanted....plus, the less cancer the better. I originally wanted a mastectomy but the oncologist didn't want me going through any unnecessary surgery while still trying to fight off the cancer growth. The surgery went very well and I am very happy I had the procedure.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): Being diagnosed is something you never think you will have to go through....until you do. I was 33 years old with a 8 month old baby. Over a period of about 3 weeks we went from ok there is a lump, to its cancer, to wait I think it's spread, to its stage IV in my breast, lymph, lung, liver, and bone. I didn't know how to live. I cried every time I looked at my daughter. Then one day not long after that I realized what I was doing wrong..I needed to live! Not be sad. I have so many wonderful things in this life and this cancer is not going to take me from them.
