    Hi Sue my name is Noella and I had triple negative breast cancer still in Duct, stage 1. I tried lumpectomy as well, but developed staff infection that took 3 months to cure. During that time I was told my margins were not clear. Before my surgery I went through chemo to kill all the cancer cells that may have moved out of the chest. When I was considering surgery I talked with many women. I opted for both breasts to be removed and then flap reconstruction to be done at the same time. My surgery was over 10 hours with 3 months recovery time. But I am still cancer free since 2010 and that is a miracle. I still get yearly mammogram because I have some breast material on chest wall. I go to Gilda's for my cancer support on Wednesday 6 pm. It is on Alexander street and their is childcare at Noogieland. Come join us anytime.

    Celebration (Finished treatment): I am done and had my year cancer free on June 28th of this year. God did have my back and I am so grateful.

    Loss (Body part/function): It is strange to have breasts that I have very little feeling in and I am having hard time with that. Outwardly I look the same, but inwardly I feel like a part of me is missing. Sometimes I would like them back, but I know they had cancer cells that were attacking me.
