Mildred’s Story (Triple Negative Breast Cancer)

mildreds-story-breast-cancerOn February 27, 2019, I was sitting in my surgeon’s office when he walked in and said it wasn’t good news. I felt like this isn’t happening with being 35 and not having history of cancer. I have two teenage daughters how am I supposed  to tell them?

I had a right radical mastectomy on March 26th. I finally was healed enough on May 6th to see my oncologist; he wasn’t happy I had surgery first. Then May 14th I had my port put in and started chemo May 20th. I had scans on 16th and 17th and received my stage 3 diagnosis with the cancer found in only one lymph node.

I had 4 AC then 12 weeks of Taxol/ Carboplatin. Then had the one lymph node taken out in November, came back completely pathological response. Praise God. I started radiation on January 7th, I had 24 rounds and finished treatment on Valentine’s Day. I’m doing good; going to see my oncologist every 3 months.
