    A year ago today my phone rang and the voice on the other end asked me to come into the office asap, my test results were in. Panicked, we drove to the wrong office, not a lot of conversation we made our way to the right place. We were escorted into an exam room and a very nervous Dr. met us with folder in hand, reading the results as if it was the first time the Dr. saw them to, i heard the words "i am sorry you have cancer." I knew in my heart what it was when i got the call. We were asked to wait in the waiting room as we had paper work to do. I sat there amongst strangers starring at a small piece of paper with 2 big powerful words, Infiltrating carcicoma. In the back ground i hear mark making phone calls to family and friends, "its cancer" it felt as if ever eye in the room was on me and they knew i was just diagnosed. This is a day i will never forget. As the days went on and i learned much more of my cancer, I was triple negative and that chemo and radiation would be some of the hardest things i would do in my life! As i get my mammo on the year anniversary of my diagnoses, fear has set in again. But if it came back it would be met with a fight again! I am pretty sure its scared for messing with the wrong girl in the first place!! I have a lot of milestones coming up and i am proud and happy to be able to greet them all. I will never give up and i will always fight like a girl.

      congratulations on making it through this so far as you have! It's a tough thing to do, we have all been where you were, and happy to be where we are now, (if we are past it).
