In October 2007, I felt a lump on my left side while nursing my baby. My doctor made me wait until 2008 to do a mammogram. I ended up with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that spread to my lymph nodes and my liver.
I then had 4 months of chemo, a total mastectomy, radiation to breast and liver, daily hormone chemotherapy treatment for 11 years. I’ve been on multiple treatments and I’m on number 7. Praying they find a cure some day. For now, I live treatment to treatment.
