Michele’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Breast Cancer StoriesI was diagnosed with breast cancer in early February. I went to change my clothes one evening and noticed a big lump in my right breast. I called my doctor the next day and went in for a mammogram, ultrasound, and CT scan that all came out clear, although I had an 8 cm lump that you could see and feel. My doctor decided to do a biopsy, and they found cancer. They did chemo first to shrink the cancer (my last chemo was on June 18th). Then we did an MRI to see how it all was going, and it didn’t show on the MRI either. So we decided on a lumpectomy for surgery. Unfortunately, we were unable to get all the cancer and found that it was also in my lymph nodes and not showing up on any of the scans either. I will follow up with the doctors next week to decide what my next step will be. I am so thankful for all my family and friends. They have been so wonderful to me throughout this entire thing. I have this fantastic neighborhood. They are all so helpful and wonderful. They help me to keep my head up and fight like a girl!
