I just want to touch on a subject I have not touched yet. Self exams. I cannot stress how important this is! If I did not find the lump when I did, the outcome may have been a different journey.
I religuosly had a mammogram and ultrasound every year. Every October during Breast cancer awareness month. This way I figured I could not forget to go. Coming up on 1 month shy of my yearly exam I felt the lump. So in 11 months it grew to a size I detected and the Journey began. If there’s one thing you can do for yourself, THIS IS IT. If you don’t know how to do it, your doctor is more than happy to explain and show you. It is so important to do it. Tell all your female friends.
Just Do It! Luckily it was contained in my breast and did not get to my lymph nodes. Yes, The chemo is grueling but I was spared of having radiation treatments and in my mind that’s a Godsend.
Grateful and thankful. 💗🙏
