I had chemo for five months then a double mastectomy and 39 rounds of radiation during 2012. I had reconstruction surgery with a horrible outcome. I had several surgeries in a very short period with my body being septic.
I am very lucky to be a cancer survivor! Had I been properly diagnosed when I first felt my tumor, I would have only been a Stage 1 patient.
I want people to be aware that if you feel something is not right please get answers and just don’t walk away.
