DX 8/16/16


I was recently diagnosed and learned of this “special” triple negative diagnosis.  Also searched the internet for information, but really had to stop that as it led to an anxiety attack.  My oncologist and surgeon seem positive about my outcome, so I’m going to follow their lead.  Surgery for a mastectomy and lymph node dissection is Friday morning, followed by recovery, followed by 20 weeks of chemo.  I’m ready to kick some cancer ass!
