My cancer trip all started with the yearly exam, had the mammogram done. Went home and the phone was ringing telling me I needed to go back for an ultrasound as there was a spot in the right breast. My answer yes I know has been there for years and a biospy was done and all was negative. The person stated no this is different. Well had that done and biospy and this came back postive for breat cancer. Then surgery with lympectomy and sentinal node removed, then more surgery as the cancer had spread, then radiation internal and now we are doing chemotherapy for a year as the test revealed HER2 postive. This hasn't been fun or easy as I knew, I work in the medical field and have work in oncology, this will be a fight, I am just glad that my doctors are good and at the top of the field as far as I am concerned.

Thanks for reading this.
