I was diagnosed in April, 2012, with breast cancer Stage 1. I had a lumpectomy on June 6th followed by 33 radiation treatments along with once every three weeks Herceptin treatment. I finished the Herceptin treatment on June 26, 2013, I started taking Femara in July 2012 and will continue for a total of five years. I was very blessed mine was caught early before there was any lymph node involvement. I was petrified when I received the news but after speaking with my Surgeon, Oncologist and Radiation Doctors I felt better about the cancer. Before the Surgeon visit, I was sure I was at Stage 4, I was so scared. My best friend, Sandy, flew up from Georgia to be with me on the day of my surgery. I couldn't have a better friend than her. I'm still scared of the future but I try not to thing about that and think only about the now.
