    Decision Point: Unfortunately, the surgeon was unable to get clear margins. After much consideration, decided to have double mastectomy with immediate reconstructive surgery. Awaiting surgery at this time.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): I am a wife, mother of two beautiful boys 4 years and 19 months, and an oncology RN. Hearing the words "you have breast cancer", was a completed and total shock. I am usually the one treating the disease, not the one being treated. After the initial shock wore off, I chose to be very open with family and friends regaurding my diagnosis and treatment. I am so very lucky to have such a wonderful support system.
