In 2006 at age 47 I was diagnosed with stage 1 lobular breast cancer in the right breast. I opted for lumpectomy, chemo and radiation. In May of 2008 I was diagnosed with DCIS in the left breast. I decided to have a bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction. In June of 2009 I developed an infection around the implant on my right side and had to have the implants removed. I am now healing from this last surgery and will be taking Femara for the next 5 years. I have been blessed to have awesome support from family and friends who were alwasy there for me. It has been a long hard road, but as of today, I remain cancer free. Every woman needs to be religious about having mamograms. They save lives !!
