I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. I had a double mastectomy, and was told I was cancer free. In June of this year, I felt a lump on my right breast and figured it had something to do with my implant. I called the doctor and was given an appointment to have it checked. After an MRI revealed there was something suspicious, I was scheduled for an inpatient biopsy at the hospital. The doctor did not believe that it was cancer until I was called to follow up for the results.
I was told the cancer had returned and was very aggressive. I just had surgery yesterday and had a port inserted, so I can soon start chemotherapy and then radiation. I am a fighter, and I truly believe cancer picked the wrong chick. I have a great support system: my family and friends who are helping me through this journey. I know that I’m in the hands of God, and he is guiding me through this. May God bless you all, and if you or someone you know is going through this, please remember to have faith and believe that you are stronger than what is trying to get you down.
