“I’m sorry to say that we have found cancer cells in the biopsy.”
If only I could reverse the truth I would. But it is what it is.
I HAVE BREAST CANCER.
I need your help, everyone. I won’t lie. I am scared, very scared, for myself and my children’s future. Please include us in your prayers.
The beast is small–0.6cm. Easy to fight, right? Yes. I hope. What is it specifically? Invasive mammary cancer with features of invasive apocrine cancer. Aprocrine means sweat gland? Invasive means infiltrating which tells me it is at least passed stage zero. So, what stage is it? I don’t know. It won’t be determined until after surgery.
Oncology nurse, I am not, so I am just learning about breast cancer in detail. I will try to post here regularly to get my mind busy. Maybe a few years down the road, I will read my entries and just smile. By that time I will be in full recovery.
I can survive this.
