My name is Barbara, and for the last two and a half years I have been in and out of the hospital having bowel surgeries.
Then when I finally thought I was okay, they found cancer in my right breast. I then had a biopsy done, and they found I had stage 1 cancer called ductal carcinoma cancer on in April of 2012.
I had surgery to remove the cancer, and one lymph nod,. My test came back with one lymph node having cancer, so I had to have another surgery to take out the rest of the lymhnode. After waiting 48 hours, I got the news that there was no more cancer in lymph nodes.
I started my chemo on may 16,2012. It went okay, but my lips got sore, and I lost all my hair, which was long and half way down my back. Yes I cried, but I felt better after. I have had 2 more treatments, and I get my last chemo on July 23,2012. Then in 3 weeks I will start my radiation. When that is done, I will have to take a pill for 5 years to keep the cancer from coming back.
I have the support of my family, my friends,and my Facebook family to help support me. I just want to get back to living my life and having lots of good times with my kids and my hubby before they all leave home. But most of all I want them to be able to have fun in college and their lives without worrying that something bad has happen to their mom again.
I support the breast cancer movement anyway I can. Next year my family, my friends and I are going to do the walk for breast cancer. I know I will get better, cause God’s not done with me yet, and I am not done bugging my family yet.
God bless you all. My prayers, hugs , and kisses go out to all that are fighting any kind of battle.
Love you, xoxo
