Cancer

If you have cancer.If you had cancer.If you know someone with cancer.If you want to talk about cancer.We won't pray.  We won't blame gods.  We won't give credit to gods.  We face the diagnosis and know, it is what it is.  To the extent that we can, we will define our own course.See More

Profile Information

About Me:
I'm a 35 year old disabled vet with physical limitations from a spine injury and PTSD I suffered while serving our country. On May 14th, 2014 I was diagnosed with Grade 3 Comedocarcinoma ER+ and PR+ with a 6 cm x 2 cm tumor. During my double mastectomy on the surgery table I bleed a lot, and a second tumor was found behind the original one. It was invasive and had gotten to my lymph nodes. I also have a rare autoimmune disorder called antiphospholipid syndrome. Given the age, grade, type of this BC, unknown family history, and my son's needs, I followed through with a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. My procedure was on May 30th.

You see, I was raised in foster care following a very abusive childhood that left me with many scars. I do not have parental support to fall back on. But, I was lucky enough to find a wonderful husband in London during my journey around the world. He has been a great support to me and our beautiful son. Our son is 10 years old and has autism. He is non-verbal, and this puts a great burden on us while going through this process. We struggle to find a way to explain to him what is happening to his mommy, while also allowing me to care and time I need to get better.
