Help Support Pink OctoberThis post contains affiliate links from Glamulet.
In March of 2010 (on my birthday) I went in for a mammogram. By the time I left, I had a second set of images taken and then a biopsy. The tests showed I had aggressive HER-2 breast cancer. Because of the gene I was diagnosed with, I opted for a double mastectomy.
On a study, I received two different types of chemo on the same day and every few weeks another treatment. Since I was at the treatment center almost all day when I had treatments, I got to talk to a lot of other cancer patients. I was able to hear their stories and was amazed at far they had come. It has been 5 years and I am doing well thanks to advances in treatment. Doctors and patients have more information and hope than ever before, but more women are being diagnosed every day.
The more information you have, the better decisions you can make about care. Don't put off tests that can save your life. Early detection is essential. Breast cancer is devastating, not only to the person diagnosed, but to their family and friends.
