I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer in November of 2009. I survived 2 courses of chemo, a modified radical mastectomy, and radiation (8 long months) – finally received the great news that I was cancer free.
Went back to work as soon as I could, back to real life!!! In August 2011, I started having vision problems and headaches. After an eye exam and an MRI, I was told I had a brain tumor (a meningioma). Surgery was scheduled quickly to remove the benign tumor, however, during the surgery the neurosurgeon found brain mets. Treatment is still be decided. A PET scan will be done to see if the cancer has metastasized anywhere else and I will move forward!
Another bump in the road, right??
