As I went for my yearly mamo I could tell from peoples faces things were not quite right. The Radiologist suggested we do an ultrasound since I missed my mamo the prior year. I was always faithful on them but for some reason I missed one year. After the ultrasound the Doctor informed me I had breast Cancer. I was like what? My worst fear came true. I was there alone and no words would come from my mouth. I sat in the car for quite a while before calling my husband. Telling the kids was really hard especially for the younger one.. Upon seeing the surgeon she informed me it was stage 3. After going thru the surgeries, chemo ,radiation, preventative medications and support groups, I feel good and am almost reaching the 5 year mark. All is good. God Bless to everyone!
