I work at the Hospital in which I received my cancer diagnosis. I was diagnosed, "unofficially" on 12-27-15 by my wonderful Radiologist, Dr. Weber. He said to me: "I can't officially call it cancer until the biopsy is returned, but I am 99.5% sure you have breast cancer." I got the OFFICIAL diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast on 1-6-16. I had my lumpectomy on 2-18-16, and about 2 weeks thereafter, was staged at a stage 1, with no cancer cells evident in my lymph nodes. In April, I had radiation therapy, and my Radiation Oncologist opted to utilize the Canadian protocol since I had over an hour drive per day to the radiation center. Now, 7 months later, my community, co-workers, family, and Doctor's consider me a Cancer survivor. It is all still surreal. I am still processing. Trying, as a 47 year old woman with a beautiful 6 year old Son, to "be healthy."
