Karen’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Karen's Breast Cancer StoryI was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. After a double mastectomy and many trips for chemotherapy, I was in remission for two years. Five years and five months later, the cancer came back behind my sternum. Radiation and chemo!

Two years later, at my yearly scan, I am now dealing with the spread of breast cancer again. In my right kidney, and lymph nodes in the neck. Five months into chemo and I can say, with a smile, it is shrinking.

My life revolves around my cancer, but does not control my life!
