On May 10th, 2005 I was doing my regular breast check self exam and I found a lump.
I had no insurance yet because my birthday wasn't until the 24th of May.
I called my new doctor and explained what I found and she went right to work to get the insurance to start sooner.
When I had my biopsy they found 2 more tumers. I elected to have my breast removed, they took lymph nodes to check them also.
When I went to the surgeon to have the stitches removed he informed me the nodes came back with more cancer.
I had to undergo more surgery to remove 10 nodes. I went through chemo for 8 months and I am clean today.
Thanks to my new doctor and her attention to me I am cancer free for almost 4 years.
