Im stationed in Korea as a Soldier and four months ago I found a lump in my breast. After seeing a doctor and going thru the testing was informed it was cancer. I then was given biopsies to remove the tumor and to test the lymphnoid. By the grace of God my results were negative. Due to the cancer being present I am going thru the chemo process now. 3 sessions down 3 more to go. Strength and Inspiration comes from within. Being a Soldier has made it challenging but never the less Im a survivor and fighter. For all those going to the battle stay strong and stay inspired!
I was diagnosed with stage IV breast, liver and bone cancer back in June 2013. I had a walnut sized lump in my breast, 5 tumors in my liver, 1 was 6 cm, a tumor on my spine, cancer on my right pelvic bone and cancer in my adrenal gland! I just completed my 32nd chemotherapy treatment and the cancer is gone in my breast, adrenal gland and spine. I have 1 tumor in my liver that is down to 2 cm, the cancer in my pelvic bone and possibly a spot on my spine. I had an ovarianectomy in October, kyphoplasty surgery in October and another kyphoplasty scheduled this month to repair the damage in my spine, caused from the cancer. My oncologist wants me to continue chemotherapy for at least another month or two to try and shrink the remaining tumor in my liver and bones! I've been married almost 22 years and have a precious almost 2 year old daughter. I've had so much love and support from my husband, daughter, parents, Grammy, siblings, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, friends and my sweet animals. I'm a fighter and will do everything possible to survive!
The story starts with a routine annual mammogram on 2-14-14. The next Monday morning, I got the report, (because I work for the doctor that I see as my PCP) it read solid spiculated mass in right breast. As soon as the doctor came in the office I showed him the report and said get an ultrasound. That afternoon I went and got the ultrasound and a scinti mammo. Yes I had a 15-18mm solid mass. On 2-19-14 I had a needle biopsy. Then one week after the mammogram I was told I had ductal carcinoma in situ. I cried and cried. And then I looked to Heaven and said Lord, you brought this to me now get me through it. I made an appointment with a doctor in Houston, TX and was told good news: Stage 1, 95% cure rate, lumpectomy and then radiation. Thank you Lord Jesus. I have my surgery on 3-18-14 and I am on a mission to BEAT THE BEAST

In May 2013, at the age of 50 I was diagnosed with stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. I had a double mastectomy followed by reconstruction. I was surprised to find out all the surgeries and different steps that it took for reconstruction, but they were all worth it. I'm thrilled with my new chest, and happy that it is all behind me. During that time, I longed for more support and information about reconstruction but was able to find very little. I decided that I needed to share my experience with other woman, so that they would have help, answers, and support, so I used my downtime to write a book about it.
God is Good! I feel I am both a fighter and a supporter ! My grandma had breast cancer and won (for a time ) and Jan 18th,2014 I found a lump in my left breast .... Called my doctor ASAP and was in for the first mammogram and ultrasound in my life .....to find I had a 5x3 cm lump. Of course we set up an appointment to have it biopsied Feb18th . I didn't make it... My darling parter insisted after seeing me in soooo much pain to go to the ER . Feb.16 I went in and they didn't let me go. Set me up for surgery the very next morning . It had grown to the size of a grapefruit !! Lucky for me it was not cancer but an very extreme and severe infection and almost killed me ! To this day my wound is open and is being packed daily . I have to go to the cancer center every week and continue to get better every day . I like to think although it wasn't cancer I fought that battle and won NEVER LOSING FAITH that GOD had a plan and I needed to put it in his hands .... So am I a fighter ... I think so !! Am I a supporter!!YES !! That word cancer eats at ur soul... Anyone who has, is, or had the scare of going through it ... Ur AMAZING !! YOU CAN DO IT ! YOU CAN BEAT IT . GOD BLESS U AND KEEP ON FIGHTING !! You GOT THIS ! ** Thank you Robert Eugene for standing by me and holding my hand through it all I love you !!! THANK YOU MOMMY ! Ur tender love and dedication to seeing that my booboo is packed proper each day (even though it breaks ur heart to have to do it for me) ur beyond the greatest mother a girl could ask for !! I love you more than words can say !
I had been to the doctor in April of 2013 and all was well. In September, I was cutting the grass and cut over a fire ant hill and ended up being bitten by four ants on my ankles. I developed a skin reaction on the right side of my body and what I thought was the fibroid cyst in my left breast. When the skin on my body resumed to normal and the "cyst" did not, I knew I had a problem. I called my imaging center and being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I could not get an appointment until the 29th. Upon viewing my mammogram, Denise turned around and announced to me that she was a Breast Cancer Survivor and I needed an ultrasound. It was done immediately, and Juanita informed me that she also was a survivor. Biopsy was done the next day, results were received Monday, November4. Tumor was 1 1/2cm, by the time I got to surgery it had grown to 3 1/2cm. Triple Negative Breast Cancer. My surgeon was phenomenal! She recommended lumpectomy, followed by chemo and radiation. She got clean margins on removal and by the Grace of God no lymph node involvement! I finished Chemo yesterday, 3/5 and will be moving on to radiation in a few weeks. Stay in tune with your body!
