Tammy’s Story (Breast Cancer)

Tammy's Story (Breast Cancer)At 39, I have been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.

I had a mammogram in February, a bi-lateral mastectomy in March, and have had 10 rounds of chemo.

I have 6 more to go before getting new scans to see if the cancer is under control.

They say at stage 4 I’m not curable, but I have faith and determination on my side.

I fight like a girl and plan on spending many more years with my family!

  3. Keep fighting Tammy. I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer 9 months ago, and I know how you feel. I have had surgery, chemo, and radiation and I’m waiting another 2 months before we can repeat my scans. Every day is a fight, but I plan on being a survivor for many years and fighting like a girl is my new way of life. My hospital has a very active survivorship program with activities every month…if you have access to those where you are I recommend doing whatever you are able to. I was discouraged after my first support group because most of the ladies were survivors of multiple breast cancers, and the thought of dealing with a recurrence was overwhelming while I am still fighting the first round, but my oncologist put it in perspective and told me that I needed to concentrate on the fact that they were all there and survivors after multiple battles.
