I am a wife and mother of 4 (21 y/o twin sons, 14 y/o daughter and a 6 y/o son who is my grand finale!) My breast cancer journey began at age 39 with me feeling "lumpiness" in my breast of which the midwife who gave me a breast exam said felt "normal", and that I could wait until I was 40 to have my first mammogram. It did NOT feel normal to me, so I said that I would like a mammogram right away. After two abnormal mammograms and then a biopsy, I was originally diagnosed with HER2+ Stage 1a DCIS with a very small area of microinvasion. I had a LOT of microcalcifications that were covering the entire top half of my right breast, so the doctors recommended a full mastectomy of that side. After my mastectomy, the pathology report showed an undetected 5.5 cm tumor and the lymph node they took was completely infiltrated. This bumped me to Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma and then it was decided that I would do 6 rounds of TCHP chemo and then radiation as well as continue Herceptin and Perjeta for a year. This journey has been SO rough, physically and emotionally, but if anything positive has come out of it, it's that it has forced me to stop putting "living" on hold, and try to get out there and enjoy this gift of life as much as I can! My lifelong anxiety has often led to fear that has prevented me from really living to the fullest.
